Charleston Export Coal Terminal Wooden Trestle

During my trip to explore Charleston, South Carolina, I chartered a helicopter to photograph the historic city by air. While flying over Charleston Harbor, I spotted the remains of a wooden trestle jutting into the Cooper River. This landmark industrial site belonged to the Charleston Export Coal Terminal. 

The Charleston Export Coal Terminal started operations in 1915. The operation was commonly referred to as 'the coal tipple. A tipple is an industrial operation that loads mined materials into railroad cars that move the load to the end of the trestle and transfer it to the waiting cargo ships.

After the tipple closed, its industrial brick buildings and trestle sat abandoned.
