“It was many and many a year ago, in a kingdom by the sea..." Edgar Allan Poe
But darn, look at that grand sidewalk!
Right! And look at all the frame work for awnings. It's hard to match the angles without the original photo in hand. I need to print something out to take with me. As it is I was standing in the middle of the street.
Cool Pictures! I was wondering if you have any historic pictures of Vanderhorst Street? I live at the rear of 46 Vandy.
Actually, it looks like it hasn't changed much since the first picture..___Cheap international calls
Love the before and after photos, using vintage postcard and pictures when they're available. Looks pretty much the same except the street certainly has been widened.
love before and after shots and this is an excellent set.
There are a bunch of cool old photographs on the South Carolina Digital Library--www.scmemory.org.It a nice way to kill a little time.The anonymous librarian
I love, love, love old photographs. Whether they be places, things, or people - they fascinate me. Photographs and movies are, to me, the greatest treasures. They remain to show what was, when what was is no more. Priceless.
Matthew - I live on Vanderhorst. I know more about the history of the people living in my house than I do my own ancestors. I recently met the descendants who came down from New York. I don't have many old pictures from this street but I do have some of hurricane Hugo and the destruction. Let me see what I can dig up. Jimmy - We do pretty good maintaining the old buildings here. Kate - I do too. It reminds me not to always wait until cars are out of my shots. Vehicles do so much to date a photo. brattcat - thank you! I need to remember to do more of them. Anon - Just went to look at them. Thanks for the link. I walked down to do a before and after of the old Baker Hospital but the sun was setting behind it. Marcheline - Me too! Love 'em.
I just looked at this view the other night. I also love b & a shots.
That would be great!
Very cool comparison!
