I should’ve posted this yesterday, on Flag Day, but I found it after I’d already posted yesterday’s old photo. But Phildelphia’s week-long Flag Fest finishes today, so I guess I’m still in good time.

So in honor of Flag Day … here’s a look at the Betsy Ross House, in Philadelphia, c. 1900.

Needless to say, the house and its surroundings look rather different today. (To see the front of the house itself, go to the courtyard portion of the virtual tour and click on the “Betsy Ross House” star.)
