Members Solve Photograph Mystery

Our thanks to the Society members who responded to our call for assistance in identifying some mislabeled photographs which appeared in the first issue of the newsletter.

Several members recognized the pictures of the relic room in the armory of the Washington Light Infantry in Charleston, ca. 1907. After some more digging, we found a description of the room, its display cases, and relics as they were housed in the WLI's armory at 240 King Street (the old Calhoun Hotel). The photographs and the description matched, thus solving the mystery.
