My original post was overridden by news that the Morris Shanty was going to be moved back over to it’s new platform on the South side of the river. I headed down and set up a timelapse in the same place I set up the Cheese Shanty camera, but pointed across the river this time. Again, hats off to Biggs Construction and Kasson Contracting for another flawless move.

Executive Director of Fishtown Preservation Amanda Holmes was back and forth overseeing the move. JB93008
