Gilmore Henne 2011 Rally for Recreation Comedy Showcase and Benefit Event
Image by seng1011
Last month fellow photographer Jessie Hodge and I shot the Charity Event hosted by NFL players John Gilmore and Chad Henne. The charity event was held to raise money to rebuild and restore some local community parks in the Reading Pennsylvania area, giving children modern, safe, and clean areas to play.
The comedy showcase featured comedian headliner Alex Thomas and comedians Pierre, Sid Veda, and Power 99’s Tazz Daddy as host. Also featured were Jeremiah Trotter, Kristy Kowal, the Reading Phillies Dance Team, David Cullen, and the John King Dance Band.
For more information about the event and the good cause, check out the Gilmore Henne Community Fund at their website www.ghcommunityfund.com/index.html. Also follow them on facebook at www.facebook.com/gilmorehenne.

Railroad Avenue, Seattle, ca. 1911
Image by IMLS DCC
Creator: Webster & Stevens
Description: Good railroad service was vital to growth of Seattle as a seaport. Eight tracks were built in a 120-foot right-of-way along the waterfront. This made it easier to transfer freight between the railroad cars and waiting ships. This photo shows the trains, piers, and warehouses along Railroad Avenue, looking north from the foot of University Street. Railroad Avenue is now called Alaskan Way.
