#ThrowbackThursday: Profile of Charleston in 1964

February 27, 2014 - Posted in Palmetto Scene by Tabitha Safdi

This is a clip from a 1964 SCETV production, S.C. Cities. In this episode, landmarks from the Holy City of Charleston were featured.

S.C. Cities is an archival series of South Carolina cities. In the full episode, you can see a tour of Charleston in 1964, with sketches of the city by Anne Worsham Richardson. Also a visit to Hampton Plantation to visit poet laureate Archibald Rutledge, the only known footage of Rutledge reading his work on camera. The closing credit sequence is also interesting for the background footage, in which the original metal bridge is seen as the sole span across the Cooper River.
