The Dickens Inn is located in Head House Square, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This Franklin styled building, constructed in 1788, is part of the historic Harper House. Note all the beautiful colors and details - sign with a profile of Charles Dickens with Newmarket on it, the unusual bond in which the bricks were laid and their differenct colors, flower boxes, etc. The detail in the painting is magnificent! In 1986, this painting was commissioned by the Pickwick Club in Philadelphia for Cedric Charles Dickens, great-grandson of Charles Dickens for his 70th birthday. Click Commissions. What a party it was that night and Cedric was a hoot! The original painting now hangs in the Dickens Inn by the Tower of London in England. In turn, Dickens presented the artist with an autographed book he had written title "Drinking With Dickens." On the night of the presentation, the artist still remembers being given as a gift a rum cake. Now, a dear friend of his, Edee B., has taken over that tradition and gives him a scrumptious rum cake on his birthday. The detail in this painting is magnificent! The artist has a few prints hand-signed by Cedric Charles Dickens. Click Credits. This print is available as a limited edition and an open edition. Individuals have even used this print framed with two openings - one for the print and the other for a photograph. (Wedding, engagement, party, etc.)
