Images from the Nathaniel Russel House, Charleston, South Carolina.
The staircase is elliptical, giving it a graceful look as it rises throughout the buildings main core. It rises three stories. Built in 1809 makes it even more impressive.
The second floor windows over look The Scots First Presbyterian church yard.
With only small floor lamps around the base of these stairs the ambient light through the windows was used in these photographs.
This staircase is one of the main reasons the home was inducted into the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.
