This art piece is of property of a pharmacy located in Burlington, New Jersey. It is of great brick edifice that was also constructed in 1731. Hence, Roberto has given the title of this piece the same as the year it was built. The inspiration behind this chosen pharmacy was because of its historical value of a “route of escape”. During the Civil War (1863-1865), abolitionists in New Jersey assisted runaway slaves with their escape to northern free states. By 1790, Burlington had the largest free black population of any county in New Jersey. Additional costs may be included for purchasing with matting and frame.
