A photographic record of the changes brought about over the last one hundred years in and near the city of Charleston. These archival images photographed in the 1890s were photographed again in the 1970s and published as the first edition of CHARLESTON THEN AND NOW. This updated edition includes new photos from the 1990s. The pictures, old and new, are arranged side-by-side, proceeding northward from the Battery in a tour sequence. The photos are black and white to remain consistent with those of 1890 and to yield a better comparison of then and now. Included are scenes from the South Battery to the Citadel, and from roof tops and sailing ships in the harbor viewed from St. Michael's steeple. Beyond the Ashley River are scenes of St. Andrew's Church, Drayton Hall, Magnolia and Middleton Gardens, Ft. Dorchester, the Tea farm, and Pine Forest Inn, while across the Cooper are views of Ft. Moultrie. This volume reveals the remarkable preservation of one of America's oldest cities.
