Well those pics didn't turn out very clear. Let's try this one.


To help, that's the South Korean flag next the US flag, the Columbus Memorial in the background, and Mayor Nutter next to the podium.

Thanks, Charles. Can't believe you went out tagging on Monday, after 10+ hours in the saddle on Sunday! I was totally exhausted. You da man! Also, THE MEMORIES! Your tag is right across the street from a couple of high-rise apartments, where many of the 20 something nurses used to live! Memories!

So, Here's the New Tag:



A photo clue…..the tag is just a few blocks South of this corner store:


A video clue…. the corner store, where I had lunch is right across the street from this pub, which was gonna be the tag until I saw the mural:

Wow, nice double (or will it be a triple?)!

The gate was fortuitously open when I was there during the week. Sorry you couldn't get in. And I had my Eagles jersey on! They'd never give me a hard time!

Of all the roads with ford in their name in this area, this is the only road I'm aware of that still has an actual ford, and it doesn't even have ford in its name. Mill Creek crosses Old Gulph Road here.

I tried to get this one on the way home from work today, but the road/gate at the crossing was closed. I guess they're anticipating flood conditions from the rain?

A pic of the closed gate would do just fine for the grab. Your bike should be in front of it of course.
