The City Hall of Philadelphia

“Returning home, riding down Market Street in an open summer car, something detaind us between Fifteenth and Broad, and I got out to view better the new three-fifths built marble edifice, the City Hall, of magnificent proportions–a majestic and lovely show there in the moonlight–all flooded over, facades, myriad silver-white lines and carved heads and mouldings, with the soft dazzle–silent, weird, beautiful–well, I know that never when finished will that magnificent pile impress one as it impressed me those first fifteen minutes.” –Walt Whitman
