Augustus Constantine buildings, Charleston, SC

On a recent journey to Charleston, I spotted several buildings designed by local architect Augustus Constantine. A Greek immigrant, Constantine also designed his own office at 139 Calhoun Street. Following is just a small selection of buildings he did, all from the mid-1940s.
