Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Back of Things

In this challenge Cee asks us to view something from behind or from underneath.  My submission is the monochrome version of the underside of what may be the earliest example of a cantilevered, or floating, staircase in Georgia.  Cantilever construction allows for an overhanging structure, such as a staircase, to be constructed without external bracing.  This staircase is found in the historic Chief Vann House which was built in Northwest Georgia in 1803 and 1804 by James Vann.  Vann was not only a Cherokee chief but was also the wealthiest businessman in the Cherokee Nation. The Vann House, located in Chatsworth GA, is a State Historic Site.
