"St. Michael's Church, Charleston, from N.W." St. Michael's Episcopal church, the oldest existing church edifice in Charleston, viewed several weeks after the great earthquake as efforts were under way to repair and refurbish it. A discerning person today can still detect the earthquake fractures in the building's walls despite the wonderful cosmetic "surgery" of recent years. (South Caroliniana Library Archives)
