What Does This Artistic Rendering Depict?

This week, a twist on the usual historic photo contest.

The drawing above, provided by the East Whiteland Historical Commission, was likely completed in the late 19th century.

Can you guess what location is being depicted in the artwork? Submit your answers in the comments, and we'll post the correct answer with a current photo next Wednesday.

Please also share any memories or anecdotes along with your guess.

It has to be the mansion that is hemmed in by the Home Depot parking lot.

The old biker bar next to Home Depot.

Tom L.: Wasn't it the scene of a shoot-out between local motorcycle gang members and police back in the 1970's? (Across the then-dinky old two-lane Lincoln Highway from the Glen Lincoln Tavern) Be kind; I am almost as old as your brother Joey! Our generation told us to not trust anyone over 30; they never said what we should do when we got over 60!!! As long as we've got our memories, we'll be ok! But it's nice to have youngsters like you to fall back on!

That is the Lockwood Mansion. It had a beautiful stained glass window at the first landing on the stairs that I heard got broken during the shoot out.

Agreed!

Agree with Tom - the Frank Furness house next to HD.

It's Italianate Design with Victorian Gothic details and the architect was Addison Hutton.

Tim: The "old biker Bar" was across Lancaster Ave where the Hampton now stands. This is the Old Lockwood Estate. Jon Flint, Malvern

I so remember that biker thing at that house back in the 70's. Was young than, teenager. There were cops all over the place, we were driving up Rt 30 when that was going on, they had the road closed. That was a crazy time for bikers, very active.

It is the mansion next to Home Depot. I believe it's original name is Loch Aerie.
Tom Logue September 06, 2012 at 09:02 PM

Cindy Higgins September 07, 2012 at 05:40 PM
My husbands' aunts owned and lived in this house.
