Old Philadelphia - City Hall by Moonlight (Paul McGehee)

"Old Philadelphia - City Hall by Moonlight" by Paul McGehee. In 1682 William Penn founded the "City of Brotherly Love", Philadelphia, as the capital of his Pennsylvania Colony. Philadelphia played a major role in the American Revolution, and was the site of the signing of the Declaration of Independence from Britain in 1776 and the United States Constitution in 1787. Less than a century later, the city planned the construction of a magnificent City Hall building to situated on the site of William Penn's "Centre Square" (now Penn Square) not far from the spot where Penn first made a pact of peace with the local Indian tribe to establish the Quaker settlement, thus giving birth to Pennsylvania. The 548'-tall structure was begun in 1871 and topped off in 1894. For several years it was the tallest building in the world, finally surpassed in height by the Singer Building (1908) in New York City. Atop the main tower of Philadelphia's City Hall is an enormous 37'-tall bronze statue of William Penn, facing in the direction of Penn Treaty Park where it all began. Through the years, the old City Hall Building has dodged the wrecking ball once or twice, but is now listed as a protected National Historic Landmark in the National Historic Register. "Old Philadelphia - City Hall by Moonlight" is faithfully reproduced from Paul's original color pencil drawing as an archival quality print issued in a strictly limited edition of only 500 pieces, each hand-signed by the artist. Print image size: 10" x 14 1/2".
