Philadelphia. Pennsylvania

My cousin, Frances, and I were exploring Philadelphia when we decided to stop in at the American Philosophical Society. We weren’t allowed to go into the research rooms but in the lobby they had exhibits of photos from the installation of the railway system and Lewis and Clark’s journals. It was incredible to see the intricately drawn maps and ledgers of Lewis and Clark’s journals and the old black and white images from the railway installations in the West. These moments were such an extraordinary piece of American history and it’s so encouraging to see these type of recordings being preserved.
