Philadelphia’s Lost Waterfront
Co-sponsored by the Historical Society of Pennsylvania and Philadelphia Society for the Preservation of Landmarks
Thursday, December 5, 2013
6:00 – 7:00 pm
Established between the Delaware and Schuylkill Rivers, Philadelphia became the first major shipping port in North America. For some 200 years, the streets, piers, and businesses of the central waterfront along the Delaware River were a hub of maritime and commercial trade. Join us as local historian and author Harry Kyriakodis discusses the earliest chapter of the waterfront’s history: the riverbank caves in which early Quakers settlers lived and the series of steps that William Penn directed to be built along the river. The lecture will be followed by a document display, refreshments, and Mr. Kyriakodis will sign copies of his book, which will be available for sale.
This event will take place at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania.
