Photos of a favorite family of grotesques, evicted from their former residence at the Philadelphia Episcopal Parish House on the 3700 block of Chestnut Street, Philadelphia.

Sadly, their home was demolished to make way for a 25-story apartment tower, their fate unknown. Hopefully they were salvaged, for who in their right mind would just crush and dump these charming beasties?!

Eyes on the Street has more info on this architectural tragedy. For a closer look at my photos before the wrecking ball, just click each image below and try not to cry.
