T. Scott Kreilick, President, CEO, and Principal Conservator of
Kreilick Conservation, LLC submitted this note Thursday in response to an earlier E-Sylum request.
I see in two 2010 issues of The E-Sylum a discussion regarding the undetermined location of the six Ionic columns from the 2nd U.S. Mint, now owned by the Albert Einstein Medical Center (AEMC) on Old York Road in Philadelphia.
The columns were de-installed in from in front of AEMC in 2000. They sat in storage, first in South Philadelphia and then in Swedesboro, NJ, until last week. The bases were re-installed in front of AEMC last Thursday (11 April). The columns were re-set earlier this week, and the capitals and abaci were re-set today. I have attached a photo from this afternoon.
Our company, Kreilick Conservation LLC, conserved the columns. George Young Co. were the riggers. Dupuy Construction Services was the General Contractor.
