Since 1702, Elfreth's Alley has been home to more than 3,000 people. Today thirty-two houses, built between 1728 and 1836, line the alley. They form one of the last intact early American streetscapes in the nation. Elfreth's Alley is a National Historic Landmark District, one of the first districts that celebrates the lives of everyday Americans.
I really liked this series. Good work. Margot
Hi Hank it looks well lived in.
Hi Tery and Margot. It was the colorful patchwork of civilian clothes that drew me into this shot. Of course I get a kick out of the circa 2009 American Flag as a less than authentic touch on a colonial age street.
Welcome Bruce. It WAS pretty festive.
This little street is full of history, full of life stories, full of colour, so full of life. This is America's style. Thank you for sharing these parts of America. Bogdan
Thanks Bogdan; I think you summed up what is good about this photo perfectly. Best regards,
Thank you Hank. I'm feeling proud about your kind comment. I really love that kind of places, and I'm looking to discover or just to see on Panoramio, such places. Thanks to you, I discover a lot. Cheers, Bogdan
What a cheerful place and photo, Hank! Very nice gathering on the street to enjoy the scene together.
Occassionally there is a real reason for color "film." This was one of those times. The interest is in the patchwork of colors created by the people and the surrounding. Thanks for stopping by.
Bonita y colorida foto, desprende paz y tranquilidad. Un saludo.
Muchas gracias por sus amables palabras. Saludos cordiales,
