The S-Bridge to Manayunk
Postcard, over 100 years old of The S-Bridge to Manayunk

When I saw this photograph which is more than 100 years old, I was intrigued by it. I searched the internet to find more of what this industrial town looked like a century ago.  My research helped me imagine life  working and living in a mill town at that time. I painted my portrayal of the S-Bridge as it looked 100 years ago. This Bridge that connected Bala Cynwyd, Montgomery County and the Manayunk neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, was built in 1883 by T. L. Eyre, a Philadelphia contractor and replaced in 1923 by the current concrete open spandrel arch bridge.

The original watercolor painting is painted on Arches Watercolor Paper. The image size is 17 x 24 inches. The painting is matted and framed with archival materials and glazed with UV resistant glass. The over all dimensions of the framed piece is 27 x 34 inches.
