Pennsylvania - Allentown


Starting off in the Fairview neighborhood, this plough sculpture is at 12th Street and Jefferson Street.

The Fuller Barn stands along the Little Lehigh River at the south end of the city, along Fish Hatchery Road just west of the Interstate 78 overcrossing. I don't know much about the obviously old barn, but the lime kiln next to it dates to the mid-19th century.

Scenery from the area of Bogert's Covered Bridge, featuring a 1741 cabin and more of the Little Lehigh River.

I know it's late, but let's head downtown to the 1899 Soldiers and Sailors Monument in Center Square, topped by a replica Goddess of Liberty statue that is very unreflective. Fun fact: the monument has a Battle of Bull Run cannonball in its base.

The 1928 Pennsylvania Power and Light Building is on the corner of Hamilton and 9th Streets. It had the world's fastest elevator when it opened and remains the tallest building in Allentown.

A most unfortunate use for 840 Hamilton Street. That's a lot of Butz.

The Old Lehigh County Courthouse will close out the page. The center of the building dates to 1819, with the wings and tower added in 1864. The most recent addition is the Beaux-Arts style rear annex seen in the last two photos, dating to 1916.
