Photograph of Charleston rooftops following Meeting Street north. The City Hall (80 Broad Street) rooftop is prominently featured in the foreground with the Timrod Hotel (also known as the Timrod Inn) directly to the left. Caption printed on bottom reads, "Looking north from St. Michael's Steeple, 1939." Note the "Timrod Hotel" sign even though the 1939 Charleston City Directory lists the hotel as the "Timrod Inn."
