Brown-papered doors of the famous R. Morris bldg with its 4 little entryway heads.

Brown-papered doors of the famous R. Morris bldg with its 4 little entryway heads.
I am pumped or psyched because the highly-trusted news source Phila. Business Journal says: the building's gonna get rehabbed into a "boutique hotel"!!, it will open up its doors to rich kinds of customers in late 2009 — if lord willing we're all still alive in 2009. This might be our last chance to see a genuine Gothic Revival!

The lettering above the doorway is an approximation of the man Robert Morris's historic siggy, which he was allowed to apply to numerous U.S. founding documents despite his embarrassing entanglements in the sadistic brutalities & tortures of the slave trade.

(New news: The building became apartments circa 2012.)
