This image, taken in mid-summer 2004, shows Harvey taking a much deserved water break,
while Joe and his assistant, Louie, prepare the wall for the diamond tiles. Notice the old "Gretz Beer"
building in the background. A century ago this neigherborhood (Kensington, Northern
Liberties and Brewerytown), once a German settlement with more than 30 breweries, was a
major industrial and brewery center. Gretz, the last of its kind, closed in 1960.
