    It looks like it’s definitely ‘come a cropper’ and the young man really adds a sense of scale 🙂

    Didn’t know this was in Philadelphia, I live across the river in NJ, we will have to track it down. Do you have the address of where it is located?

  10. Thanks for the visit and ping back over at CTB 😀 . Since they changed format on WP nobody takes the time to ‘ping’ anymore. Much appreciated.
    Love your shot and it shows great scale 🙂
