In 1905 Graceanna Lewis reported to a friend that Fussell had painted about fifteen landscapes, “all along Ridley Creek. On all fine days he takes his lunch and spends the day, and does not come home until late supper time.”1 Ridley Creek is a tributary of the Delaware River that flows twenty-one miles from its source near Frazer, East Whiteland Township, Chester County, southeasterly into the Delaware River at Chester, Delaware County.
