1886 Charleston, SC Earthquake Photo
"St. Philips". This photograph by Dr. E.P. Howland, a Washington, D.C. dentist who was also a skilled photographer, shows poles supporting portions of St. Philip's Episcopal Church, founded in 1680. Notice the absence of the west portico (left side of the picture); it collasped from the earthquake. (South Caroliniana Library Archives)
