Located in Philadelphia on 2nd street between Race and Arch Streets. Elfreth's Alley is the oldest residential street in America. Riding on the success of the now famous painting Looking to the Future Formica was commissioned to create a painting that would help to promote Elfreth's Alley. Rendered in oil, Jeremiah's Dream took eight months to complete. After months of researching old archives of Elfreth's Alley, the Free Library, Temple Archives and many web sources Formica finally decided on the format that you see here. As more information comes in this page will be updated with details about how you can get a print and where you can see the original.
