Flyover Pennsylvania: T.M. Fowler’s Bird’s-Eye Views of Pennsylvania Cities and Towns, 1885-1905
Thaddeus Mortimer Fowler – who signed as “T.M. Fowler” — was part of a small group of itinerant artists who made their living by sketching and publishing panoramic views of American cities and towns in the decades after the Civil War. Over 170 of these views are preserved in the permanent collections of the State Museum and the Pennsylvania State Archives. Join The State Museum of Pennsylvania’s Senior History Curator, Dr. Curt Miner, for a discussion about Fowler's work and legacy.
Presentations will start at 12:15 PM and will last approximately 20 minutes followed by a question and answer period.
The State Museum will reopen with limited hours and with limited timed tickets on Friday, April 30, 2021. Visit statemuseumpa.org/reopening for more information regarding reopening.
Sessions will be presented over Zoom and are free, but registration is required. Once registration is complete, attendees will receive an attendance link and password for all of the sessions listed.
