An elevated spirit

An elevated spirit: Muralist Phillip Adams is adorning the 1200 block of Carpenter Street with the third element of his Industrious Light series. The 150-year-old building on which he is giving life to his brainchild is helping him to pay tribute to Philadelphia’s brewing, railroads, textiles, and toolmaking histories, with a blacksmith set to make a giant sewing machine that will rest atop what remains of the space’s water tower. ■
