upon the dignified beauty and classic
porticoes and galleries which adorn one

But Charleston has another and quite
unique architectural feature In the
arched and ornate wnlls of moss grown
brick which close In all of the line
residences and the highly decorative
wrought Iron gatewaya which give ac

prudence to erect a strong barrier be

Out of this necessity grew the Infinite
number of gates and grillages of
twisted Iron which are the chief pride
of Charleston today and whose only
rivals nre the far famed gates of

full of deer, bear and other big game.
