“Charleston Rail”, A Pictorial History

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.

Local resident Michael Carnell is looking for old photographs that might be used in “Charleston Rail”, a pictorial history to be published by Arcadia Publishing in its Images of Rail series.

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 or 843-628-6379.
