Description

Meeting at the pig may sound less dignified than meeting at the eagle, but Philbert, a 3-foot bronze piggy bank, has become a popular spot to wait for a friend. Philbert lives in the bustling Reading Terminal Market, where he invites shoppers to feed him coins for charity.

Philbert’s name is a pun on Filbert Street, the southern boundary of the Reading Terminal Market.
