About the Author

Ed Mauger, founder of Philadelphia on Foot, has fashioned unique tours based on his in-depth knowledge of city history and architecture and of the streets and byways of old Philadelphia. His wit, warmth and storytelling abilities have earned him praise as "Philadelphia's favorite colonial guide," as well as plaudits by critics from coast to coast. Dubbed a genial campus legend when he left his position as Associate Dean at Rutgers University, Ed has also authored several articles on Philadelphia history and colonial high life.
