    The Rowhouse Boom: Populist Victory or Philadelphia Noir?
    The proudest moment for the Philadelphia rowhouse was in Chicago, of all places. A two-story "Workingman's House" was "put up at the Columbian Exposition," reported Talcott Williams in 1893.

    Playing Favorites: Vista Peru Reviewed
    There are people out there who love Peruvian food, and there are people who've never tried it. No one falls in between. Vista Peru is a potato lover's paradise. All Peruvian restaurants are, really. They're places where the potato is taken in strange new directions - used as filling, like bread, as a center-plate star - and respected as the miraculous tuber it is.

If you haven't already seen it, be sure to catch the latest episode of Philadelphia: The Great Experiment. You will see our very own Bruce Laverty (the Athenaeum's Gladys Brooks Curator of Architecture), as well as Board Member David B. Brownlee. It also features historian (and Athenaeum shareholder) Thomas H. Keels, and writing by Nathaniel Popkin (former Athenaeum Writer in Residence).

    Philadelphia The Great Experiment: World Stage (1872 - 1899)
    Philadelphia celebrates the Centennial of the USA with a spectacular World's Fair in 1876. The merchant John Wanamaker captures the spirit of the times with his grand department store. He leads the effort to build a city within the city for the Fair, including the largest building in the world.
