Philadelphia Alley


On a summer Sunday after church we walked down Philadelphia Alley. It was green and shady and felt COOLER!


What a pretty, narrow, cobblestoned little alley!

A popular dueling location,Many men dueled to the death here.They settled their differences and arguments over land, money, property, liquor, treasures, and women.


Love those old sun-dappled cobblestones!

On a 97 degree day.....this is a nice little respite. Hard to believe it was once a scary or violent location.





Pretty little place to "Comeback" to!

  2. On our last visit to Charleston, we found this lovely street and had to walk it. We took a picture of us under the sign. BTW, we live about an hour or so outside the city of Philadelphia.

  3. You look very beautiful in your colorful top with the fringe. And I love those old cobblestones and the history of that place. Makes you sad to read about the devastating fires! Enjoy your week sweet friend. Hugs, Diane

  4. That alley looks like a perfect place to check out--especially when looking for shade on a hot summer day.

    One of my best memories of Charleston is hearing the clip-clopping of the horses on those cobblestones... LOVE that sound!

    Hugs,
    Betsy
