The First Baptist Church of Charleston – Early 1900’s

By Mark A. Leon

Once again, we sprinkle the fair dust and say the ancient prayer for time travel.? If that doesn’t work, we can enjoy the next installment of Charleston, a look back at yesteryear.? We have dug deep and we mean deep in the annuls of time to uncover these historic images of our home.? Enjoy family pictures, postcards and we even slipped in a celebrity high school yearbook pictures.
