Guests: Joseph B. Elliot, Nathaniel Popkin, Peter Woodall,
Philadelphia is filled with unseen spaces and little-known history. In the new book, Philadelphia: Finding the Hidden City, JOSEPH E.B. ELLIOTT, NATHANIEL POPKIN, and PETER WOODALL show readers the photographs of urban life – from the Civil War through World War II. In this hour, Marty talks with the trio of authors about the multilayered history of Philadelphia and the stories behind the Wanamaker organ, faded picture of Father and Mother Divine and the now-abandoned Holmesburg Prison.
