Our current FREE exhibition, "Real Philadelphia: Selections from the Robert M. Skaler Postcard Collection," will close on Friday, January 26, 2018. Our show features more than 250 examples of “real photo postcards” a popular and wide-spread type that were produced by professional and amateur photographers alike between 1904 and 1918. These extraordinary images depict Philadelphia at the zenith of its industrial prosperity. Of particular note are the scores of pictures of children who played on the streets of the ever-growing row-house neighborhoods of the Workshop of the World. Don't miss your last chance to see the show!

Happy #NationalHandwritingDay! The holdings of the National Archives are brimming with hand-written records like this document, the Deposition of John Snyder. This document is the sworn statement of John Snyder regarding the events surrounding the assault of Garrik Hulsecamp by Ezikiel Teel. It comes from a criminal case file which consists of assault and battery charges brought against Ezekiel Teel for his alleged assault of a man by the name of Garrett Hulsecamp on his ship in October of 1790. You can learn more about this case, and see the handwriting up close, by visiting our online catalog: https://catalog.archives.gov/id/18545806. We know that last week’s Citizen Archivist Challenge is over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t continue the important work of unlocking history by transcribing and tagging our records! If you haven’t already, get started by visiting the Citizen Archivist Dashboard (https://www.archives.gov/citizen-archivist) to learn how to start and to find specific missions. Want to learn more about our holdings? You can check out our online catalog (www.catalog.archives.gov) and make an appointment to view our holdings at the National Archives at Philadelphia by calling (215) 305-2044 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Today's post was written by Grace Schultz, Archives Technician at the National Archives at Philadelphia.

"The story is related by the Narrator, a grownup version of the misguided Youth, with a distinct sense of irony... and a kinetic, eclectic score that ranges from gospel to punk rock." - The Philadelphia Inquirer
