This collection of gelatin silver photographs by Kenneth Clark consists of the original prints that were reproduced in three issues of the White Pine Series of Architectural Monographs, published by Russell F. Whitehead. The series was intended to provide 'intimate treatises of the architecture of the American colonies of the early Republic presented with well ordered completeness, to further a broader understanding and to create a permanent record of Early American architecture.'
In 1928, five issues highlighted Charleston architecture. The photographs feature Charleston buildings, street scenes, views, and architectural details. They appeared in three of the five Charleston issues: 'The Charm of Charleston: A New World City of Old World Memories' (vol. XIV, no. 2), 'Some Charleston Mansions' (vol. XIV, no. 4), and 'The Edwards-Smyth House' (vol. XIV, no.6).
