15 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Ryan H on December 16, 2007
Format: Hardcover
This coffee table-sized book does a fantastic job of covering some key monuments and attractions in and around Charleston. Photos of historic buildings and locations taken during the mid - late 19th century and early 20th century are juxtaposed with recent photos of the same locations, often from the same perspective to give a true sense of the change. Brief but informative paragraph-length captions describe the content and significance of the photographs. The only drawback is the photos aren't dated, so the true content and age relevance is not completely conveyed. Nonetheless, the stroll through time is thoroughly enjoyable and definitely something to be shared with others.

This book shares the history of one of my favorite cities Charleston that shows the Charleston of now and earlier. It's a great way to envision the Charleston of yesterday in your mind.
