About the Book
The town of Pendleton, South Carolina is a small but historic village dating as far back at 1790. The photographs presented in this book represent casual strolls through town to capture the Pendleton that so many people have come to love. Street scenes, vignettes, and compositions often overlooked or seldom considered are the things that give a place its sense of place, its unique identity. Pendleton is special, and these photographs show why.
