Charleston, East Battery by hdes.copeland

Charleston, 21 East Battery, also known as the Edmonston-Alston House. Photo taken after 31 August 1886, immediately following major earthquake. Photo is available on the wed and is part of the archival collections of the Library of Congress (LOC) and several other public institutions.

Damages to the Edmonston-Alston House included the collapsed balcony on the front, cracked masonry walls, the shattered parapet including the Alston armorial symbols and the tangled iron fence and gates. All were repaired and largely restored to their original appearances which also describes the current (2010) condition.

Note also the building to the south, or left in the photo. The Holmes family house located at what would become 19 East Battery was damaged and later repaired. One of the largest houses on the Cooper River waterfront, it was later demolished after being severely damaged in a hurricane sometime between 1910 and 1915.
