A great writeup from Hidden City Philadelphia on the Cret Illustrated Show hanging in the Hamilton Mansion. Come check it out at the opening tonight from 5:30-8:00

    Cret Exhibition Captures Vibrations Of The City
    Editor's note: Architectural drawing is a dying art. Before the digital revolution gave birth to drafting software, renderings of buildings, bridges, barrel vaults, and bell towers were meticulously illustrated by hand. And although most of the technical work done for architectural and engineering firms in the past left no room for emotion or expression, a human touch, and a physical object, remained.

One charged, one at large in assault on Penn Grad student

Police believe the men were responsible for another assault in the 100 block of Farragut, kicking and punching a man for his wallet.

This article has 3 other Philadelphia locations (Show)

Dougherty, 27, said he was walking home from his bartending job around 2:40 a.m. Saturday on the 900 block of Clinton when he was attacked.

Police said the next night these two men would strike again in the 400 block of S. 43rd Street, this time hitting 26-year-old Penn graduate student Dean Schmeltz over the head with a brick, fracturing his skull for his credit card and cash.

Police said the two had just been released from jail, after serving time for three similar robberies last year at the intersection of 18th and Ellsworth streets.
