Charred

An exhibit at the St. Augustine Government House museum depicting a scene after the fire that destroyed the city in 1895.

And if you really want to see something neat, here is a link to the 1895 New York Times article about that fire from their archives - originally published on March 29, 1895.  Ain't the internet amazing?!
