You're looking towards the intersection
of Sissonville Rd (Rt 21) at 7th Ave in North Charleston in 1950.
The church is still there today, and other than that.... there's
nothing interesting about this photo. But I wanted to set this
up for the following photo which looks in the opposite
direction towards North Charleston:
You see, I was told by a good friend
who is close to 80 years old and spent much time working in the brick
business that there used to be an overhead tram in North Charleston
that carried raw clay from up on the hill, and over 7th Ave
to the river, where it was made into brick. I asked several
old timers about this but no one could remember it. I was wondering
if my friend might be starting to "forget things" as we
all do eventually.
But then I found this photo......
