A Hidden City tradition that makes a great gift! This year’s calendar features images from Brad Maule, Mike Bixler, Chandra Lampreich and Pete Woodall that take you inside some of the buildings you’ve always wondered about, such as the long-vacant Church of the Assumption, the old Tastykake factory,and the Willow Steam plant.

 

 

Grand_tee

Grand Theater t-shirt–$75  The second in our series of t-shirts celebrating unusual buildings in Philly. Our friends at Hog Island Press came up with the design and did the silkscreening on 50-50 cotton/poly blend shirts from American Apparel. With its distinctive masonry, and multi-layered history (it was built as a church, was converted to a theater, and was used most recently as a store), the Grand is a building worth celebrating!  Email ifidanza@hiddencityphila.org and tell us your size! (s, m, lg, xl, xxl)

 

 

 

skyscrapers_mercantile_listingSkyscrapers of Philadelphia Print–$100

*PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PERK WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE UNTIL MID-JANUARY

Hidden City’s custom reprint of this late 19th century lithograph measures 18×23 and is printed on uncoated French Paper Co. stock for a look and feel that’s closer to the original. We love this image for the wonderfully detailed renderings of some of our favorite Philadelphia buildings, and for the measuring stick running up the right side of the print that allows you to figure out the height of each building. It’s also great because the artist has lumped all of Philadelphia’s tall buildings together under the term skyscraper, even Independence Hall!

 

 

Divine_Lorraine_perkDivine Lorraine Old & New–$125

For lovers of one of Philly’s most haunting buildings, two great ways to enjoy architect Willis Hale’s creation. You’ll receive both this unused, circa 1925 postcard showing the building when it was the Lorraine Hotel, and this t-shirt showing its current incarnation. Only one available.

  1. I love the incentive packet you have for your tours. But, I am only one person. Instead of a 4-tix tour, would it be possible to get 4 1-tix tours? Thanks.
