About the Collection

Photographs taken by Sabina Elliott Wells in 1898-1899. Wells was a Charleston artist and designer; she was also a Newcomb potter. Photographs include scenes in Charleston and the Lowcountry, in northwest South Carolina (Table Rock and vicinity), and in western North Carolina (Flat Rock and vicinity). Scans were derived from negatives donated to Historic Charleston Foundation. (Note: Wells’s diaries from 1898-1899 that document some of her travels, including sites represented in these photographs, are at the South Carolina Historical Society, “Sabina E. Wells papers, 1886-1942.”)
