The kids from Saul

The students from W.B. Saul High School always do a fine job at the show, and I'm happy to see their 2011 exhibit filled with visitors this afternoon. Its subject is the history and design of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, otherwise known as "Philadelphia's Avenue des Champs Elysees." It was designed by French urban planner Jacques Henri Auguste Greber in 1917 and, as most mobile Philadelphians know, it stretches (comme un speedway) from City Hall to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The Champs Elysees ends at the Arc de Triomph. So we have both here - the art museum and the arch, decked out for spring. Would've been nice to have talked to a student, but none was around. Catch you next time.
