Photograph looking north on Meeting Street. Paine captured a street scene from his second floor window (or attic) at 47 Meeting Street with the facade of the Nathaniel Russell House (51 Meeting) visible to the left and the churchyard and domed steeples of First (Scots) Presbyterian Church (53 Meeting) in the background. Directly beyond the domes is the Branford-Horry House (59 Meeting) with the steeple of St. Michael's Episcopal Church (71 Broad) to the right. Several automobiles can be seen through the tree lined street parked on either side.
