“Philadelphia: The Great Experiment – 1872-1899”

John Wanamaker, circa 1870


(Boy, did I have fun taking him for a test drive! What an interesting life!)

This is from a series called, “Philadelphia: The Great Experiment”

The episode is titled, “The World Stage: 1872-1899” and I’m not going to give you a time-stamp because I’m kind of in this one a bit.

PRODUCER: We need someone who looks constipated all the time.
MY AGENT: Hold my beer…

(BTW, my lovely wife, Sarah Lynn Dewey, can be seen at the 18:49 mark in the July 4, 1876 scene. We were in the scene together but were shot in completely different locations and not on the same day! Ah, FILM!! 😂)

Watch the 30-minute episode here:

Before the Time of Covid, he could be seen on stages throughout the professional Philadelphia theater community or writing in a local Starbucks, where the only way they could get rid of him was to tell him there was a pandemic. He has a hard time knowing when he's not wanted.
