Original drawing by marine painter George Robert Bonfield (1805-1898) of the USS Pennsylvania laying at anchor on the Delaware River. A sailboat is shown close by, and a few faint pencil lines on the left side suggest ships docked at the water's edge in the far distance.

Inscribed in pencil by the artist below the image: Drawn from the Pennsylvanian Ship as She lay off the Navy Yard by G. R. Bonfield


Item pdcc01025, bottom [image dimensions 10.0 cm x 18.5 cm]:

Halftone reproduction of a photograph shows traffic halted to allow a steam locomotive, pulling freight cars, to cross Broad Street.

Caption reads: Gates are down at Broad and Callowhill streets, where the Philadelphia and Reading Railway tracks crossed. The tracks now run under the bridge at that point. The building at the extreme right was the Reading Passenger station. At the left is the Baldwin Locomotive Works. The view, made in 1890, was contributed by Theodore H. Gloeckner, 137 West Louden Street. If you have an old-Philadelphia photograph send it to the Evening Ledger.
