What is your favorite thing about old cities? For me, it’s usually the houses and shops. I love the old brickwork and wooden shutters, boot-scrapers and weird door knockers, and colorfully painted doors.
Philly had a wealth of gorgeous old homes and buildings to swoon over. As we walked around town, I couldn’t help but pause every few feet to admire an old building, and wonder how long it’s it been there, what did it look like on the inside, how many people have lived or worked there over the years, and what were their lives like.
