– Jack McCarthey presents his new book Manufacturing in Philadelphia “In the Cradle of Liberty and Industry: A History of Manufacturing in Philadelphia” which traces the City’s manufacturing base from the fabrication of hand crafted items of Colonial times through the Industrial Revolution from which Philadelphia emerged as an industrial giant to the present service based economy.
