A preliminary version of the Classicizing Philadelphia web site (https://classicizingphiladelphia.omeka.net/) is now up and running, with a small set of data focused on architecture and city planning. This marks an important step forward for Classicizing Philadelphia. None of this progress could have happened without the support of the Classical Association of the Atlantic States, and especially of its president and officers, or without the help and good will of the librarians and other staff of Bryn Mawr College, including especially Camilla Mackay, Head of Carpenter Library and Visual Resources; Nancy Halli, Image Cataloger, Carpenter Visual Resources; and Oliva Cardona, Program Assistant for the Department of Greek, Latin, and Classical Studies. I am grateful to them, and also to Jen Rajchel and the TriCo Digital Humanities team and to Bryn Mawr’s Chief Information Officer, Gina Siesing, for their support and encouragement of Classicizing Philadelphia.
