Summerville: 1906

Summerville: 1906

1906. "Sumter Avenue, Summerville, South Carolina." 5x7 inch dry plate glass negative, Detroit Publishing Company. View full size.

 

Alas it is all gone now

Sadly this bucolic scene has changed into a two lane road with modern houses lining both sides of the street. This has happened because Summerville is no longer a small Southern town. It is exploding as people who are working in Charleston and who don't want to live in the city are flooding Summerville.

[With any luck, the flooding will counteract the exploding. - Dave]

Spanish moss and live oak trees

rarely seen apart in the Old South. Spanish moss is an epiphyte rather than a parasite, since it doesn't actually get its nutrients from the host plant.
