Description Bulletin of the Pennsylvania Museum de Pennsylvania Museum and School of I Art:

Excerpt from Bulletin of the Pennsylvania Museum: January 1912 The Park Commissioners having converted two more divisions of the basement on the north side of Memorial Hah into exhibition rooms, these have been assigned by the Museum authorities to the extension of Mrs. W. D. Frishmuth's Antiquarian Collection which now occupies five well-equipped and adequately lighted rooms. These are approached by an easy stairway- and the interesting collection of objects that from one to two hundred years ago formed what to modern Americans may seem like the comfortless comforts of the English and German Colonists, is now accessible. One must look here in vain for the relatively luxurious relics of the great and the rich. There are no Adam mirrors, no Chippendale furniture, no Lowestoft or Chinese porcelains. The picture evoked by the collection is that of the farmer's humble homestead or that of the poorer citizen of the town. But that poorer citizen or farmer probably enjoyed far greater comforts than did his English brother of the same period. The collection now before us well illustrates the fact that Philadelphia, at the time of the Revolution, could represent in one of her industrial pageants, so common in those days, fifty distinct trades. It was on the solid foundation of manufactures and trade that had been built up a Society living in self-produced comfort and ease, (i) Trevelyan(2) states that Philadelphia lacked nothing that was possessed by any city of England, except a close corporation and a bull-ring. Pennsylvania, about the middle of the eighteenth century, could justly be called the most flourishing of the English colonies. A fleet of four hundred sail left Philadelphia yearly with the season's products. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
