Historic Charleston, SC Advertisements

Ashley Plaza Mall Opening

 

By Mark A. Leon

What better way to show the way it used to be in Charleston than to showcase some old advertisements from magazine and newspapers.  This will take you back to when a home was $12,000 and a drive-in was under a $1.00.  Times have changed, but the feeling of nostalgia never goes away.

Let us flip the papers of the newspapers and see where it takes us.
