14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Fire Insurance plaque in Elfreth's Alley

This plaque signified that the original owners had this building insured against fire with the United Firemen’s Insurance Company of Philadelphia. A nice reminder of urban life in early America.
