Item 1, entire page: Jefferson Medical College was chartered in 1824, and located at 513 Locust Street.  The college moved in 1828 to a new location at the SW corner of 10th & Sansom Streets, to accomodate the rapidly growing number of students.  This image shows the Ely Building after a new Greek Revival facade (designed by architect Napoleon LeBrun) was added in 1845.  Although this building was demolished between 1898-1907, the Thomas Jefferson University/Sidney Kimmel Medical College now occupies the same location.  Engraving, 22 cm x 27 cm, undated (between 1845-1881).
