CHARLESTON AFTER THE STORM OF 1911

CHARLESTON
AFTER
THE  STORM OF  1911




       The photographs below were found in an old box full of railroad memorabilia that had not been touched for 10 years.  We invite you to take the time to appreciate a piece of Charleston’s past through these scenes of  Charleston after the Storm of 1911.  These same photographs may be available at public libraries or in museums, but their rarity is almost a certainty.
