Listen to my latest interview which is with @nathaniel.popkin(link in BIO 👆). Why is Philadelphia the “Hidden City?” What makes it distinctive in the landscape of American cities? And why does it matter? These are the questions Hidden City Daily co-founders Peter Woodall and Nathaniel Popkin and Hidden City Festival photographer Joseph E.B. Elliott (@joseph_elliott_photo) seek to answer in the new book, Philadelphia: Finding the Hidden City, just recently published by Temple University Press. (@templeuniv )

As the authors examine the historic reasons Philadelphia is the Hidden City, their essay and Elliott’s 110 photographs draw the reader inside, to discover the complexities and contradictions of Philadelphia’s sometimes misunderstood nature. Elliott’s photographs reveal the essence of 33 places around the city, including some hidden in plain sight. Take a journey to the Hidden City! #giveandtakecast
An ice-water tap on a bathroom sink so you can have freezing water to, um, uh... brush your teeth? Wash your face? At Winterthur, there was ice water available on the bedroom floors so that the chambermaids could fill up carafes to place in the guest rooms, but this is too low for that purpose. The way it is positioned it doesn’t seem possible to fill up a glass! 1924, Thomas Maddock’s Sons. #didntcatchon #icewater #sink #americanbathroom #athenaeumofphiladelphia #thomasmaddock
