The Black and White Negatives of South Carolina State Parks is primarily composed of images taken by the State Forestry Commission, the agency which operated the parks from 1934-67. Additional black and white negatives in this collection were produced by the State Park Service in the 1970s. This collection documents the administration and public use of the parks. It includes photographs of park scenery, recreational activities, historic sites, maintenance work, natural and cultural resource management, and construction projects.
