I've always been fascinated by "then and now" photos, and when I came across these pictures of Charleston in 1865, I could not resist going out and trying to shoot the same locations 143 years later. I don't know who the 1865 photographer was, but I don't think he'll mind me not listing the credit. This is where I found them: http://www.civil-war.net/searchphotos.asp?searchphotos=Charleston,%20SC The 1865 photos were taken during the city's occupation by Federal troops just after the end of the Civil War. The subject of the first pair is the intersection of Broad St. and Meeting St. Saint Michael's church is in the background. The building on the left is the old City Hall, which has recently been renovated. This is the Old Market House on Meeting St.
