WORLD EVENTS
Avondale is a town 35 miles outside of the center of Philadelphia, far from the bustling city. It is also the home of his sister and of his childhood friend William J. Crowell, and their eleven children. For most of his life, Eakins uses Avondale as a refuge from the stuffiness of Philadelphia.
1883
