The East Battery Seawall, seen here, was completed in 1819. The marsh that had been there was filled in and in 1820 large extravagant homes were built on the reclaimed land. When the shelling of Fort Sumter began in 1861, citizens who lived along the battery seawall had "ringside seats" to the event and lined the promenade you see here to view the shelling.

Nice sense of depth. I really like this kind of photos whichs seems no have end.
But, from my POV, I would added more people. It usually gives a more "human" feeling.
In any case, good picture, I like it.
