Photography Collection

Whit Smith Loan of Photographs by Various Photographers

Description

149 B&W photographs and one drawing of Charleston (and vicinity) streets, houses, buildings, places of worship, and other locations. Most are 8x10. Photographers include Louis Schwartz, S.A. Wall, Howard R. Jacobs, Robert E. Fennessy, Ronald Reilly, J.R. Burbage, and W.A. Jordan. Other photographs may have been taken by the donor's grandfather, C. Bissell Jenkins. Dates are not noted; however, many appear to be ca. 1940s through the 1960s and none appear to be taken after the 1960s. Vehicles, the condition of building, etc, may identify some dates. Most of the photos have the name and/or address of the building or location handwritten on the back.

All photos in this record are 75 dpi. Each photo has been scanned and are saved to CD, most of which at 300 dpi but a few at 150.

Scans of images appear in this record under "image management"; refer to the photo number by each description below.
