Karl Bitter’s terra cotta relief Spirit of Transportation, in Philadelphia’s most important transit hub, 30th Street Station


“The spirit of transportation is represented by a triumphal procession of progress led by a little child carrying a model of an airship, a prophetic vision of a mode of transportation to come.”



relocated from PRR’s Broad Street Station, where it was installed in 1895.
