A big fireworks event at the Philadelphia Seaport Museum. The crowds are all along the waterfront, with hardly standing room ashore, but we were allowed in the seaport docks with our little steamer.

File comment: excellent conditions on the river, but very hot day.

Before the event we crossed the river with the sidewheeler, where the battleship New Jersey is docked. Many people aboard that 200,000+ horsepower steamer, waiting for the fireworks.
