Weekly Photo Challenge: An Unusual POV

Photographers don’t usually capture the underside of a staircase, but my point of view came from the historic significance of this one.  Perhaps the earliest example of a cantilevered or floating staircase in Georgia, it is found in the historic Chief Vann House which was constructed in 1803 and 1804 by James Vann.  Vann was not only a Cherokee chief but was also the wealthiest businessman in the Cherokee Nation.

    Very unusual POV. That staircase certainly has some history and could probably tell a few interesting stories. 🙂


    1. Definitely could tell some stories. When the Vann family was removed during the Cherokee Trail of Tears, the Georgia state militia tried to smoke them out by throwing a burning log on the staircase. The damage can still be seen to this day.

    At first I got confused whether this is a door or a staircase.. 🙂


    1. I can see how that might happen. It’s definitely a staircase, just taken from below. 🙂
