I only snapped a few images yesterday at the Philly Is Baltimore rally since I was live streaming/reporting for work (philly.com). More photographs to come if/when another rally/protest goes down here in Philadelphia.
The legendary Kelly family has left their mark not only on the world, but on the East Falls neighborhood where they hail from. Now, thanks to the efforts of the East Falls Historical Society (EFHS), a historical state marker will make their place in history even more visible.
Over the weekend a dedication ceremony was held at McMichael Park to commemorate the family and their many accomplishments. The marker sits at the site of the Kelly’s former family home, located at 3901 Henry Ave. and built in the late 1920s by John B. Kelly, Sr.
The family’s most notable members are highlighted on the marker, including Princess Grace of Monaco, or Grace Kelly, an Academy Award winning actress; her father, John B. Kelly, Sr., three time Olympic gold medal winner for rowing; and John B. Kelly, Jr., also known as “Kell,” who is best known for winning the 1947 Henley Regatta and an Olympic bronze medal for rowing.
The dedication ceremony, which attracted over 60 people, brought out a crowd of Kelly family fans and local residents.
