Charleston is one the older cities in the US and the downtown area is a nice display of old and elegant houses. Here we see one of them, dating from 1894 (as you can tell from the inscription on the top of the façade). The house to the right is also an older house, while the building to the left is more modern. The taller building in the background is the Francis Marion Hotel, dating from 1924, where I stayed.
