Indian Rock Hotel, 1873

Wissahickon Creek, Philadelphia, Pa.

A two storey white building stands to the left in this scene. It has a white, two-storey porch across the full width of the front of the building. The hotel sits right on the edge of a very wide dirt road. Opposite the hotel is a low, open shelter to tie up carriages. In the distance is a smaller white building. In the foreground is what appears to be a fence to hitch horses to. Two adult figures are on the porch with three chairs. A one-horse closed coach stands in front held by a man in a red shirt. This is a heavily wooded area. The leaves are on the trees.

After a photograph by Robert Newell.
