“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:

Author: Scott Langdon

Scott Langdon is an actor, writer, and photographer living just outside of Philadelphia in Bristol, Pennsylvania with his wife, Sarah, and their dog, Watson. He can be seen on stages throughout the professional Philadelphia theater community or writing in one of his many favorite local shops in his beloved "Borough", 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.
