Appealing Abodes

USA US-636961 received 03-15-2010

Notes: Charleston, South Carolina was founded in 1670 as Charles Town in honor of King Charles II of England.  The name was changed to Charleston in 1783.  The city has a population of around 120,000 people, some of whom live on the street shown here.  I have no idea what street this is, but CaliMom tells me that these houses overlook Fort Sumter, where the opening shots of the Civil War were fired in 1861.  The houses are beautiful, but its a shame that they are so close together.  They would look much more elegant with a little land around them instead of being practically on top of one another.
