Westside of Schuylkill near Girard Avenue Bridge, undated

Not certain Girard Ave., Philadelphia, Pa.

In this winter scene snow covers all. The Girard Avenue Bridge is in the distance. Men are cutting ice from the river. There are ice houses. There are a horse and dray to haul the ice. Written in the lower left hand corner are the words "1871 demolished." It is believed this does not allude to the year the scene was painted.

Location: Library Company of Philadelphia
call number: P.2298.053
