Charleston, Day 2

Okies, so today I saw a lot of things that WEREN'T in the guidebook, however, I did see some things that were.

Some things I found, as regards to the previous entry, were the the Roper Hospital and the Medical College original sites:

A lot of the homes that one can visit, were not attractions in 1893, as they were still privately owned. However, as they are available now, I have been seeing them. Those photos will be seen in the complete album, the link to which will be posted in the Day 3 entry.

Now, the guidebook info will complete this post:

We now return along East Bay, passing the Old Post Office,

to the new Custom House, built of white marble (view of harbour from back). A visit may also be paid to to one of the Cotton Compresses (no smoking) in this locality.
