Adam Levine, historian for the Philadelphia Water Department, uncovers more ghosts of Fairmount Park’s watery past. Join him for this illustrated lecture as he talks about more abandoned reservoirs in Roxborough, another pumping station and standpipe in Holmesburg, swimming lakes (not pools) in East Falls and South Philadelphia, winter skating, and the steamboats that plied the Schuylkill through the 19th and early 20th century.
This talk is a follow-up to an earlier lecture, Ghosts of Water Part 1, which took place last October and can be found here:
