    Waves of Change in the Birthplace of American Rowing
    Dotty Brown

    "[A] must-read for anyone interested in the sport of rowing and the enormous contributions of those who once plied the Schuylkill River.

Kelly, but those noteworthy artists, architects, businessmen, and politicians who helped to build this historic piece of riverbank into the living dynasty that it remains today. With the deft hand of a skilled writer, she unravels a Philadelphia story filled with fascinating characters, revealing new insights on old stories that have remained shrouded in mystery, and supplements her narrative with beautiful artwork and photography."—Daniel J. Boyne, author of Kelly: A Father, a Son, an American Quest
