Here you'll find some self promotion and writer's pieces that arent even from the fucking area. But nonetheless you'll also find diamonds in the rough, below is one such picture. Check the link and judge for yourself.

This is another site where you can find some great gems. Most if not all of the links still work and you can view a number of slams from dudes who actually did them proper. The toss page lacked slightly and leans to the West. But I also remember first seeing this site and it being another cool resource for pictures.

This is another site that has the majority of photos still hosted on it, 610 Graff. Many of the writers you see here are repeated on the site above, however alot of the photos are different and you'll find some great old photos for you to learn from. There are a number of Philly writers on here, but it also has a good look at the 610 at the time with some minor exceptions. I actually remember when the site stopped getting updated. It would be pretty funny if it started up again and the "610Kid" stopped sleeping.

This wont take you anywhere,
but this will.
The picture embraces what the Upper Darby / West Philly crossover means. Where does the WP line start and who should be allowed to write it? I'm not from either, so I aint worried about it. But leave your comments, let me know what you think about it.
This page was strictly early ESC and the people they painted with as the page describes. There is some classic material hosted on this site. You can certainly see the development that the writers went through, mainly Mad and Kid. Not much more to say but take a look and see how long some of these guys been rocking walls and developing styles.

Then of course you have two main websites that weathered the storm of websites. Nightcrawla and Silent Wrytes. Nightcrawla does not allow you to post and thank god. You can view numerous writers throughout Philly Wall Writing history that made a dent in numerous neighborhoods throughout the city. SW which started out the same as most of the websites, hosting pictures from AZ to PA focusing on Philly writing has now switched entirely to a forum based design and serves a different, but equally important purpose. No matter what your view is on how the Internet changed graffiti, its undeniable that it has made a strong presence. We are able to communicate quicker and flatten the playing ground. Some use it to abuse and portray themselves as Royalty while others just like looking at pictures.
