Item 1, top:  Image of the Seminary of St. Charles Borromeo, at 100 E. Wynnewood Road, Wynnewood, PA.  The seminary was founded in 1832, becoming the oldest Roman Catholic institute of higher learning in Pennsylvania.  After several Center City locations, it finally moved in 1871 to this sprawling Wynnewood campus designed by architect Samuel Sloan.  Reproduction of a drawing, 23 x 14 cm, undated.

Luzerne & D Streets).  Engraving, 19 x 12 cm, undated (but c. 1810).
