Frank Tybush has been parking on the same brick streets for years now. He works for Jacquie Greff, producer for Tonal Vision, which is located in historical Fell’s Point, one of the nation’s oldest communities. When Jacquie tasks him with documenting Fell’s Point, Frank discovers more than he expected.
History is alive, not just in the bricks that line the streets of historical communities, but in the people who cherish and preserve it.
