Grand Theater t-shirt–$75  The second in our series of t-shirts celebrating unusual buildings in Philly. Our friends at Hog Island Press designed and silkscreened these 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 most recently was a store), the Grand is a building worth celebrating!  Email Samantha at ssmyth@hiddencityphila.org and tell us your size!

Hidden City’s custom reprint of this late 19th century lithograph measures 18×23. 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 see each building’s height. It’s also interesting because all of Philadelphia’s tall buildings together under the term skyscraper, even Independence Hall!

The Real Philadelphia Print–$150

Philadelphia never looked so dynamic as in this 18 x 23 inch print. The futuristic image comes from the cover illustration by Philadelphia artist Jules Doriot for a booklet published in 1930 by a short-lived trade group created to attract industrial firms to the city.
