Richardson: African-American ‘Photo Scan Days’ at the Archives

In 2010, Camden resident Barbara Brown was strolling through a yard sale when she spied something she could not pass up. What she discovered was a collection of Brownie photos and assorted older photographs from about the 1910s through the 1940s featuring an African-American family. In it were old formal portraits, school photos from Mather Academy, and candid shots of families posing in front yards and living rooms, on bicycles and in front of prized rose bushes.

My Brain on NASCAR - April 12, 2016

It certainly isn't famous faces in Victory Lane. In the six races so far this season, we have seen Winner's Circle celebrations for Denny Hamlin, Brad Keselowski, Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch, and Jimmie Johnson (twice). Flags have flown, crowds have cheered and confetti has drifted down like rain.

Teal: Memorable sounds

Last month, our column dealt with a sound from the late 1860s in Kershaw County, the sound of the auctioneer's gavel at a tax or bankruptcy sale as he hammered it down and said "sold" for a piece of county property. It was an unforgettable sound, especially if it were your property being sold.
