Lost Charleston

Sku: 235938

$22.50
The miracle of Charleston is that despite the very worst that man and nature has thrown at it—from earthquakes to hurricanes, great fires to Civil War bombardment—so much of the city has been preserved. Lost Charleston shows what else could have been on display for tourists to visit had events been otherwise. Using classic archive images, Charleston's greatest architectural and cultural losses are documented in chronological order from 1861 through to 2018.

Apart from the grand buildings there are also elements of Charleston life precious to Charlestonians that have disappeared over time, many of which will still resonate with the local community. These include beloved local restaurants, annual festivals, the fishing fleet that DuBose Heyward wrote about in his novel Porgy, a famed local football team, trolley cars, and the Piggly Wiggly store. Plus there's the Jenkins Orphanage Band whose dance moves gave the city its most famous export: The Charleston!
