The name of this guide service, First Person Tours, started with the family history that Edward Drinker was the first person of English parentage born in Philadelphia.  The name also connects to the grammatical perspective of personal pronouns; "first person, second person and third person" with "first person" usually preferable to the other two.  Stretching the connection further is my belief that, in this remote and digital age, there is high value to be placed on "my own" experience and on "person to person" relationships.


The logo recalls a design that a fellow traveler embroidered on one of my few shirts when I hitchhiked for many months as a young man through Europe, Greece and Israel.  Now, I see the image as an amalgam of a rising sun (especially important to Benjamin Franklin) and a flower.
