Fairmount Water Works Prints
Bring home a bit of history! Since 1815, hundreds of thousands of people (both locals and tourists) have visited the Fairmount Water Works. This large format, handsomely restored print (Fair Mount Water Works on the Schuylkill River, Thomas Doughty, 1829) shows what was one of the technological marvels of the world – and remains one of the most beautiful examples of Federal Period Greek Revival architecture anywhere. The print is crafted to work with a standard 18 x 24 standard frame or can be custom-framed. (A second print by the same artist is also available: Fair Mount Water Works from the Opposite Side of the Schuylkill River. This print is 20 x 24.)
