Twilight on East Bay Street

Ornate Lantern, East Bay Street, Charleston, SC  © Doug Hickok


As the sun goes down and the twilight settles in, a glowing lantern lights the way along East Bay Street. In the background is the Old Exchange Building, the last structure built in Charleston by the British before the start of the Revolutionary War. Years later, President George Washington was lavishly entertained here by Charleston high society who regarded the war hero as a celebrity.

  5. This is actually more European than British to me. :)
    Natural stone colour is more prevalent here in Britain.
    Whereas painted facades are more common in the Continent.
    I think so...
