If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a book coming out about railroads in Charleston should be priceless. With a little help from generous townspeople, the book surely will be.
The importance of family collections cannot be overemphasized. Vintage photographs become increasingly fragile and by scanning and reproducing them in a book, they become available for all to see. While postcards are great, and well loved, what is being looked for here is actual photographs. They have to be out there somewhere – in trunks, in photo albums, or hanging on the wall.
Anyone having photographs to be considered for “Charleston Rail” should contact Michael Carnell at Michael@CharlestonRail.org or 843-628-6379.
