Old Pine’s Chains–other picture

July 15, 2013 | by Harry Kyriakodis

Old Pine Street Church’s chain was given to the Presbyterian Historical Society sometime in the nineteenth century. Today, the society has lost track of this chain and is unfamiliar with the Presbyterian Church’s involvement with the Sunday chains. This image is from The Romance of Old Philadelphia (1918).
