Discovering Philadelphia, Places Little Known

It is the long stretches of brick row homes along narrow streets that give Philadelphia its characteristic form and flavor.  But positioned here and there within  the matrix of crisscrossing byways are very unusual places that stand out against the backdrop of regularity. These places, the subject of architect David Traub’s talk, are not only buildings but as well landscapes. Traub will show thirty images from his recent book, taken from all sections of the city of Philadelphia, from Manayunk to Moyamensing, from Spruce Hill to Society Hill.

7:30PM with light refreshements to follow.

Abington Friends Meeting, The Barnes Room 520 Meetinghouse Road, Jenkintown

Lectures are FREE and open to the public.

The lecture series is sponsored by a grant from the Jenkinstown Lyceum. For more information please call the Old York Road Historical Society at 215–886–8590.
