Excellent book which gives an historical account of this tiny piece of 'small town' America. Largely kept intact since the last 19th century, the town has a strong appeal for the nostalgic minded. The book offers a wonderful illustrated history.

Fantastic book which gives an elusive description of an old monument in the City of Brotherly Love. If not for electronic copies of 19th century books, much information about historic art would have been lost; this book preserves important history.
