the Grand United Order of Oddfellows

7 March, 2012

Upon seeing this building in downtown Philadelphia, the Author thought she might just have found the Society for her.

Perhaps the Odd Fellows were a group of curious (in both senses) individuals who share a love of the quirks, oddities and little charms of life?

In fact, the Order of Odd Fellows’ goals are a bit loftier: “to improve and elevate every person to a higher, nobler plane; to extend sympathy and aid to those in need, making their burdens lighter, relieving the darkness of despair; to war against vice in every form, and to be a great moral power and influence for the good of humanity”*. The Author just wants to watch Screwball Comedies, share spottings of ghost advertisements and flâneur.
