On Tuesday Business Insider featured images by photography legend Dick Swanson, who chronicled life on the streets of Philadelphia for an EPA project called DOCUMERICA in 1973. Of the photos, the ones that may be most poignant (for those of a certain age) or the most unfamiliar (for the younger set) are those of kids splashing around in fountains at the Philadelphia Art Museum. Those photos became, for a time, iconic images of the city, appearing on at least one poster. Anyone have an image of that poster? Send it along to philly@curbed.com.
