Black and white stereograph image of McDonough Street, with double image pasted down on an orange card. Back of card is pink with printed publisher information and title information hand written in ink. Also handwritten in ink in a different hand is a note: "View from my room windows." This may also be a view from Chippewa Square. The Square was laid out in 1815, and dedicated to those who died in the Battle of Chippawa in the War of 1812. The statue in the square today was not installed until 1910. In this view, the steeple is visible on the First Baptist Church. In 1922, the church was renovated by Henrik Wallin and the steeple was not replaced.
The photographer of this image, O. Pierre Havens, was born in Ossining, New York. He moved to Savannah in 1872, opening a photography studio in partnership with J. N. Wilson. He later took over the business from Wilson. In 1888, he relocated to Jacksonville, Florida, where he maintained a studio until his death in about 1912. Like many commercial photographers in America during the late nineteenth century, Havens was as occupied with publishing and marketing his photographs as he was in making them.
