Charleston is full of amazing iron gates and masonry walls guarding beautiful houses. These are located on Limehouse Street.
The official name of The Citadel is, “The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina.” In 1910, the SC legislature enacted the following law:
No. 352. An Act to Change the Name of the South Carolina Military Academy to ‘The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina.’ Section 1. Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina, that the name of the South Carolina Military Academy be, and the same is hereby, changed to ‘The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina.’ Section 2. That all Acts and part of Acts inconsistent with the provisions of this Act be, and they are hereby, repealed. Approved the 25th day of February, A.D. 1910.” (Source: Act no. 352, South Carolina, Acts and Joint Resolutions of the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina, 1910, p. 684.)
Interestingly, the word “The” in the official name is capitalized twice.

This beautiful courtyard is in downtown Charleston on Broad Street.
Broad Street is one of the significant cross-peninsula thoroughfares in Charleston. It also acts as the boundary between the SOBs (South of Broad) and the SNOBs (Slightly North of Broad) areas. In the middle of this block is a wonderful old bar and restaurant (with a fantastic courtyard area) called The Blind Tiger.
It is named this after the speakeasy clubs which opened up in defiance of the Dispensary Act in 1893 — that heavily taxed the sales of liquor. To gain access to the clubs you had to pay a fee to see the mythical Blind Tiger.
Azaleas, ironwork and a beautiful house = Charleston, SC. You can find this beauty on Tradd Street.
Downtown Charleston surprisingly has many long driveways. This one on King Street is guarded by beautiful gates and some pretty blooming trees.
A spectacular catch to celebrate the opening of baseball season by a Philip Simmons gate!
