This is another one of those fun “then and now” photos that make history come alive.  I saw this photo from 1937 and it looks like the place is about to fall down. surprisingly it was still standing and looks like it’s in great shape. It’s the Josiah Smith Tennent House and is on the  US Register of Historic Places.  Today it is home to a variety of non-profit organizations, including a dental care facility and day care– [GOOGLE MAPS]

1937. “Charleston, South Carolina. 727 Bay Street.” Come in, and watch your step. 8×10 inch acetate negative by Frances Benjamin Johnston.
