Ash and I have just gotten back from a quick mini-vacation where we caught up with my best friend, who currently lives in Philly (and re-met her boyfriend who we had met once before for like 6 seconds), so I don’t get to see her very much. Because of this, I am all out of sorts and haven’t had any time to plan blog material, so I’m going to share some of my photos from past trips to Philly instead.
Congress Hall was constructed between 1787 and 1789. It is run by the National Park Service and you can take a free tour if you get there early enough.
This is a cool architectural Detail I found on a building. I don’t remember anything more about it than the fact that there were other sea-creatures on the building as well. Anyone familiar with Philly recognize this?
This staircase if from the University of Pennsylvania’s Fisher Fine Arts Library designed by the very cool but slightly off-kilter Frank Furness. It kind of reminds me of the staircase scene in Labyrinth.
Here is a cool building I spotted while we were walking to a used book store.
Hope you enjoyed this impromptu tour of Philly!
See you for tomorrow’s Friday Fantasy.
