Charleston Export Coal Terminal Aerial | Photo Art Print
Charleston's Silent Landmark: The Export Coal Terminal - Aerial Art Print
In the palpable heat of South Carolina, I embarked on an adventure. Charleston, a city draped in history, opened its arms to me. And so, I found a unique vantage point from the sky - a perspective from the heavens above.
From a helicopter, Charleston Harbor, like a vast mirror, reflected the sky's hue. Stretching into the Cooper River, the abandoned skeleton of a wooden trestle interrupted the otherwise serene vista. A once pulsating artery of the Charleston Export Coal Terminal now stood silent and sad.
This location, the Charleston Export Coal Terminal, housed a coal tipple in its hay day. It came alive in 1915, pumping life into the industrial heart of Charleston. It was a throbbing industrial site where mined materials found a journey's end before venturing into new territories aboard cargo ships.
Yet, with time, the tipple ceased. Once filled with activity, its brick buildings began a quiet, deserted vigil. The wooden trestle that once teemed with life is now a skeletal reminder of a past that saw, felt, and contributed to the growth of Charleston.
From my aerial view, I captured this symbol of a bygone era. The print, hand-signed on the reverse side, captures the intricate details, sharp contrasts, and deep blacks only archival inks can bring out. Each print is printed on acid-free 100% archival photo paper, giving a lifetime warranty against fading.
And yes, the quality of the prints is museum-grade. They come with a certificate of authenticity for your peace of mind. And although the print does not come with a frame, the image is what truly speaks.
