All photos taken for the cover except for Persichetti were by Cynthia’s husband, Aleck Brinkman. The Coltrane picture was from an incredible mural on Diamond Street, not far from where Coltrane lived. Neighbors told Cynthia and Aleck that the building will soon be torn down. The Marian Anderson picture was from a flag just outside of where she lived and where the Marian Anderson House is located. The Benjamin Franklin Statue is from the Franklin Institute, and the Betsy Ross House is a Philadelphia Historical Landmark.
