  9. After her new scent being compared to “a tank of embalming fluid,” Suzan makes a dash for it — despite the stormy weather. The heavy downpour works in her favor, however; and the park attendant who goes after her is entranced by of all things, her smell — that of a fresh summer’s rain!

    ca. 1849-1853, Floating Church of the Redeemer; lithograph

    The floating Episcopal church in Philadelphia was built in 1849 and is believed to be the first floating church on the East Coast. It was a project of the Churchman’s Missionary Association for Seamen and was devoted to serving sailors. The church moored at the foot of Dock Street in Philadelphia until reconsecrated to a New Jersey parish in 1853 and placed on a brick foundation. The building burned down 1868.
