Elfreth's Alley

It is said that this is the oldest residential street in the United States and it is located in old -of course - Philadelphia. The black dohickeys in the windows are mirrors used by old-time residents to survey activity in the street without having to stick their heads out the window. This work is based on photos from my visit to Philadelphia last month.

  2. You're making me homesick. I lived in Philly for 4 yrs while in school.
    It is a great city to visit and for living.
