South Carolina in Pictures
"Cityscapes & Street Scenes"

Well known to tourists are the faces of Charleston, Columbia, Greenville and other large South Carolina cities. We thought you might enjoy a glimpse at our quieter-but-no-less-interesting side.

Greer's forked downtown layout at the intersection of Trade and Poinsett streets (above), for example, is unusual--and Beaufort at dawn (above right) is a priceless moment in time for early morning strollers and joggers. Chester streetlights are engraved with an appropriate decorative "C." The "No Horses" signs in certain Camden neighborhoods go back for generations in that equestrian town (while in our other famous horse town, Aiken, horse-only traffic is permitted on some dirt streets). The renaissance in fabric awnings statewide, chronicled by photojournalist Bill Rooney in 1990, continues today. And along the Grand Strand, the fun way to get from one area to another is . . . on the beach!
