To all my readers out there, I apologize for not blogging in over a week! Although it is no excuse, I am in the middle of finals here in Philadelphia, and my time is being eaten up by a cumulative history of a Philadelphia Row house and a site critique on Society Hill. It looks like I will not be able to resume my daily blogging until this Friday when all my work is due and I will be free and clear for a full three weeks! Although I run the risk of boring you, my inner preservationist just can't help it! Today I will leave you with some photos of Society Hill, here in Philadelphia, before and after the urban renewal project that took place in the 1950s and 1960s.

Thanks again for reading, and to all of you who have written me such lovely comments - thanks for the encouragement, and keep on the lookout for upcoming "Christmas in Connecticut" posts!
