#supportsmallbusiness ♥️ “More and more, it’s becoming clear that the main struggle we’re having is corporation vs community. Corporations are controlling much more of the economy, food, media, government. We’re creating an energy field around the idea of local businesses.”

    Judy Wicks' Not-Shark Tank - The Philadelphia Citizen
    In 1983, when Judy Wicks was working to open the White Dog Cafe, the farm to table restaurant she ran for 26 years on the first floor of her West Philly rowhome, she did what countless other budding entrepreneurs have done for generations: She borrowed money from family-$9,000 from her mom and $12,000 from her grandmother.

Happy birthday to Pierre-Auguste #Renoir, who was born on this day in 1841. This lovely informal sketch of roses was painted circa 1912, at the time when Renoir was painting many of his more ambitious female nudes. #LOOKSLOWLY at the flowers’ colors. Note any similarities with the way he paints his female models? Renoir once told the French art dealer Ambroise Vollard that painting roses served as “research of flesh-tones for a nude.” 🎨 Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Roses, c. 1912

This is a photo of early wooden pipes uncovered on 13th & Market Streets. Circa. 1900. Starting in 1819, the City began replacing wooden pipes with cast iron ones. Besides being more durable, the cast-iron pipes made it easier to maintain water pressure throughout the system. Today's distribution system contains pipes made of cast-iron, ductile iron, steel, and concrete.

Winter Social Has Been Cancelled!!!!! We're sorry to say that on account of the unseasonably warm weather and rain this week--and the fact that this is the last weekend of the Dilworth Plaza Ice Rink this winter--the 8th annual Winter Social has been cancelled for tomorrow. We're already looking forward to next year when we can reconvene as planned, and on solid ice, to celebrate the mid-year mark with our school community. Please stay tuned for upcoming information about Bache In Bloom on May 10th, and the end-of-the-year Field Day--two great Bache-Martin social events already being planned. We apologize for the last minute schedule change and announcement. We were holding out hope for a deep freeze and no rain.

For #BlackHistoryMonth we're looking back at our last summer exhibition Mohamed Bourouissa: Urban Riders, now on view in Paris at Musée d'Art moderne de la Ville de Paris. In 2014, Algerian artist Mohamed Bourouissa worked with the Fletcher Street Urban Riding Club, a North Philadelphia community of young horse riders to stage an equestrian competition he called "Horse Day." Have you seen the Fletcher Street crew featured by Google Pixel 2? #flashbackfriday #fbf

    Corporate tax cut squeezes funding for low-income housing - Philly
    Low-income housing tax credits, which are sold to banks and other investors, are the nation's biggest source of funding for affordable housing. The reduction in the federal corporate income tax rate has made them less valuable, which is expected to translate into an even bigger shortage of residences for low-income individuals.
