Philadelphia - My Grandad's baptismal church

18 September,2008.
One of our last treks while in Philly was to see where my Grandad was baptised.
Here it is :

The church was founded 2 years before Grandad was born. He was baptised here on the 24 March,1887.

The church was locked shut, so we rang the office doorbell twice. No answer...
For you movie buffs, this is also the church where Rock married his Adrienne in Rocky II.

View of the church coming down 17th street.

Modest rowhouses shadowded against downtown Philly's riches.
