Elfreth's Alley


We visited Philadelphia for two days on the third and fourth of July and stopped by one of the oldest streets in the city, Elfreth's Alley.


What a step back in time down this narrow cobblestoned street!
It was so picturesque!





There was even an impromtu march past of sea cadets!

  9. What a beautiful alley!!! A very touristic area I am sure. One I missed when I visited Philadelphia not too long ago. We did the usual: Barnes Foundation, Liberty Bell, Museum of Art, Rocky Balboa statue, etc etc…
    Thanks for sharing. Loved it!

  19. This alley was my favorite part of Philadelphia. I took more than 50 photos (of all the doors and windows). As stretch as it looks, I saw a taxi moving along.
