Established in 1886 by Edward Hurst Brown and Samuel Hall Day, Brown & Day was one of a stable of young architects employed by Wendell & Smith in their Wayne, PA, residential development. This tie to speculative developers is enlarged by connections to George L. Harvey (1890, West Philadelphia), Thomas P. Twibill (1889, Radnor, PA), Frank A. Collamer (1886, Germantown Avenue near Somerset Street), and Alan H. Reed (1889, 11th and Spruce streets). This is not Brown & Day's only source of income, however; they have strong ties to Delaware and find a number of their commissions in Dover and Clayton, DE.
