PHILADELPHIA: PORTRAIT OF A CITY. Michael P. Gadomski. Schiffer Publishing Ltd., Atglen, 2016. 112 pp. with 117 col. ills. 22 x 22 cm. ISBN 9780764351082 In English.
Publisher's description: This vibrantly illustrated dedication to Philadelphia presents one of the United States' oldest and most historically and culturally significant metropolises with photographs, from the detailed to the panoramic, of its architecture, art, and parks. The City of Brotherly Love has it all: the largest concentration of colonial architecture in the country, modern skyscrapers, and plenty of open green space. Take an armchair tour of the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and the Betsy Ross House; head over to University of Pennsylvania's Morris Arboretum; then venture out to nearby Valley Forge Park. Through creative vantage points, absorb Philly's local color as you stroll around Old City and the 18th-century homes of Society Hill...you might even sneak a peek at the New Year's Day Mummers. From the Schuylkill to the Delaware, along the old cobblestones and among the towering monuments, Philadelphia welcomes you with open arms.
