Our Vanishing Americana South Carolina visits general and grocery stores, pharmacies with ice cream fountains, classic old movie houses, barber shops and landmark restaurants, telling about their history and the people who keep their memories alive. Mike Lassiter spent the last year traveling across South Carolina, looking for the lifeblood of small towns, community icons and historic businesses―the beginnings of commerce, livelihoods and family enterprises. At first it was old storefronts and signage that captured his imagination, but he soon became enamored with the people inside the buildings and their stories. Our Vanishing Americana South Carolina is presented by SCETV. Major funding provided by Visit Myrtle Beach, ETV Endowment of South Carolina, The Sprock-Whitley Foundation, Kiawah River Real Estate, The Pastime Amusement Company and Beth and TC Calcote. Catch Our Vanishing Americana South Carolina on SCETV on August 11 at 9:00 PM.
