Overview

Come visit the birthplace of American freedom: from the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall to Rittenhouse Square and Old Fort Mifflin, and from the elegant mansions of the Main Line to historic Bucks County with its artists’ colonies and nature preserves. The City of Brotherly Love has so much to offer, and it’s all proudly displayed in Elan Penn’s striking images: the houses of worship and battle sites from the Revolutionary period; the 19th Century landmarks, including City Hall, the Merchant’s Exchange, and the Philadelphia Zoo; Greater Philadelphia today, in all its glorious diversity; and select Cultural Treasures. Featured are museums of arts and sciences, centers of learning, public plazas and statues, state parks and naval shipyards. Anchoring the photos is illuminating historical commentary.
