Past a chalkboard that says, “Come inside to read a good book,” on one side and “Don’t be an asshole!” on the other, you come across a tattered SEPTA Union Strike poster from the early twentieth century, preserved underneath an equally withered-away lamination. A few cautious inches deep inside of this surreal time machine, a pillar manages to stand from the 1890s home of an anarchist feminist writer and speaker who lived near Drexel University.

Dejando atrás una pizarra en la que se lee a un lado “Entre y lea un buen libro” y “¡No sea estúpido!” en el otro, me encuentro con un poster viejo y andrajoso de una huelga convocada por el sindicato de la SEPTA a principios del siglo pasado, conservado gracias a un laminado igualmente marchito. A unos pocos centímetros de esta máquina del tiempo surrealista, topo con una columna de una casa de 1890 en la que en su día vivió una conocida escritora anarquista y feminista, cerca de la Universidad Drexel.
