January_2016 HC Calendar

Each year we dig into our archives to find 12 amazing images for the Hidden City calendar. It makes a unique gift yet each year we somehow manage to finish the damn thing a lot closer to the holidays than we–and no doubt you–would like. This year is no different, unfortunately.

We expect the calendars will be ready to ship on December 18th, which happens to be the final day of our annual fund drive on Generosity. Give $65 to our campaign and we’ll send you a calendar on the double once they arrive–and you can write it off your taxes! Of course, you can also just buy them them on Hidden City Mercantile for $18 each plus shipping.

This year’s calendar features images from photographers Bradley Maule, Michael Bixler, Chandra Lampreich and Peter Woodall that find the beauty in the city’s forgotten places. As per usual, we try to take you inside some of the buildings you’ve always wondered about, such as the long-vacant Church of the Assumption on 12th and Spring Garden, the old Tastykake factory on Hunting Park Avenue and the Willow Steam plant, that rust-covered beast on 9th and Willow. Happy holidays from the Hidden City crew!

Peter Woodall is the co-editor of Hidden City Daily. He is a graduate of the UC Berkeley School of Journalism, and a former newspaper reporter with the Biloxi Sun Herald and the Sacramento Bee. He worked as a producer for Radio Times with Marty Moss-Coane and wrote a column about neighborhood bars for PhiladelphiaWeekly.com.
