"Fairman's Mansion and Treaty Tree"
Engraved by John Serz after Brittan.
Published by H. Quig in Philadelphia c. 1840-1850
Under this tree's spreading branches, William Penn signed his famous treaty with the Indians. Fairman's Mansion was an old Quaker Meeting House located in Shackamaxon. According to legend the tree was blown down in a storm in 1810. The mansion was raised by the City in 1825 to make room for Beach Street.
Originally published in black and white, "colorizing" or "tinting" became popular after the turn of the twentieth century simply to make the image more decorative.
