Rick Rhodes Photography & Imaging in Charleston, SC, Offers Vintage Images of Charleston

Rick Rhodes Photography & Imaging in Charleston, SC, is offering an exhibit of beautifully restored images of Charleston in 1865, previously featured in Kiawah Island Legends magazine, on view through May 31, 2010.

As the civil war was closing, photographers came to record the flag raising ceremony at Ft. Sumter, SC, on April 14th, 1865. While in the area, these photographers also documented area forts as well as the City of Charleston.

Some of their photographs were taken on large glass plates, while others were made with twin lens stereoscopic cameras to produce the popular stereo views.

Over time, these delicate plates and stereo view images have become damaged, resulting in the compromised images typically seen. Rick Rhodes Photography & Imaging has fully restored the images of Charleston made available by the Library of Congress.

Archival, cotton rag, fine art prints are available for purchase in select sizes, framed and unframed at our gallery and at (www.charleston1865.com). Each print is titled and embossed in the lower border. Prints may also be viewed and purchased at Ellis-Nicholson Gallery in downtown Charleston and at Island Gallery on Sullivan's Island, SC.

For further information check our SC Commercial Gallery listings, call the gallery at 843/766-7625 or visit (www.rickrhodesphotography.com).
