Old City

We arrived in Phillie the afternoon before the Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo and explored Old City around our Christopher Columbus Blvd hotel.  Race Street Pier by Benjamin Franklin Bridge looked out onto the Delaware River and Elfreth's Alley gave us a glimpse of the18th century cityscape similar to what residents remembered in England.  

October 2012

I scanned a tourist map and placed the Old City segment in the center of my photo collage.






Hemp cord outlines the photo collage held in place with eyelets.  I splattered some blue paint onto to the resin to match the beautifully constructed bridge.
Have a great weekend!

Clever, clever! Love the scanned map in the center. We've been to PA several times and always enjoyed our visits! Eldfreth Alley was a must see, along with all the historic sites. Would love to go back and tour Strasburg (train museum), & Valley Forge again...and get me a big ol' piece of Shoo Fly Pie! lol- I love molasses :)
