South Carolina, 1950s

    Who would have guessed that only some 50 years later Charleston would be named both the "Best City in America" and the "Best City in the World" by BOTH 'Condé Nast Traveller- Reader's Choice Awards' and 'Travel & Leisure' magazines? The hidden emerald of the South has officially been discovered by the world. Pandora's box has been opened. Ive travelled to countless cities all across the country, and in my personal opinion, Charleston is the best preserved historic city in America (with Savannah a close second). Let's pray that Charleston's recent popularity explosion won't affect 'The Holy City's' appeal any. It would be really difficult to tarnish her charm.

    It's interesting to see how much the state has changed since the 50's and how much is still the same.

    I was stationed just outside Columbia at Ft. Jackson in 1969 for training. We used to go downtown on Main St. and go to a GI coffee house called the UFO.

    Interesting how he so smoothly skirts just who it was who really built those beautiful plantations and the wealth that lived within them. Almost raising them to glory even though he never says the word.

    I live in Seattle but I am originally from S.C. and was shocked to see the street and house I lived in during the late 60s and early 70s in the part about textile mills and housing for employees

    I remember being very afraid of that Cooper River Bridge crossing but Sad to have seen it go down,....Charleston was a GREAT place until the Blacks OFFSPRING has Destroyed most of its Reputation.
