Churches--United States
Episcopal Church--United States


A postcard depicting a view of Church Street in Charleston, South Carolina, on which stand two of the oldest churches in the United States. St. Philip's Episcopal Church opened in 1723, after moving from its original 1680 site, which is now the site of St. Michael's Episcopal Church. The Huguenot Church was built in 1687 by a group of French Protestants who had settled in Charleston, but it was destroyed in 1796. The present structure is the third, which was completed in 1845 in the Gothic Revival style of architecture.

This postcard is part of a collection of postcards kept by Lucile Campbell, a schoolteacher in Sanford, Florida, for 30 years. In 1931, she took advantage of a special rate for teachers and sailed to Europe, where she traveled for several months and is thought to have acquired many of these postcards. During the 1940-1941 school year, Campbell taught at Sanford Grammar School. Before her retirement in 1970, she taught at many other area schools, including the Oviedo School, Westside Grammar School, and Pinecrest Elementary School. Campbell used these postcards as aids in her classrooms to teach advanced subjects, such as Shakespearean drama. The collection, along with her other teaching aids, papers, and photographs, was later found at Sanford Grammar School after it became the University of Central Florida's Public History Center. Campbell's postcard collection and photographs provide insight into the life of a respected Florida educator.
