John Chamber's Church, 1868

Broad and Sansom Streets, Philadelphia, Pa.

This elegant scene is finely detailed and brightly and clearly colored. The handsome Greek-style building is surrounded on two sides by ten saplings with their spring leaves and bright green boxes protecting the trunks. There is a partial view of a townhouse to the left. There are five adult pedestrians and a closed coach with driver and pair. A gas lamp and telegraph pole are also visible.
