Care for a peek at the Union League?

The Union League, the formidable institution on Broad Street at Sansom Street, where only portraits of Republican Presidents hang, is opening its doors to the public for the first time since 1899.

They’re doing this because they are hosting an exhibition by Philly area portrait artist Nelson Shanks from now until December 17th. The League will offer free tours of the building from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Better take advantage of this offer because it might be another 107 years before they open their doors to the hoi poloy again.
