I didn’t plan on these three photographs from the other day. More of an experiment on sepia monochrome architecture shots.
One thing lead to another shot, and finally three before I stopped.
All images captured in the Joseph Manigault House, Charleston. Built in 1803 it is one of two National Historic sites in town that have the early 19th century circular stair cases.
This home was out of range of the northern canons during the civil war, survived the large fires, and even the huge 1886 earthquake.
However in the late 1940’s this house was empty, the gardens gone, and (gasp) the Exxon Corp. was building a gas station here. The Charleston Historical Society formed and bought the property at the last minute.
