Love this 1707 Illustration Phillyxpat
Yeah Zark, that pulls a lot of little history bits into a clearer picture of the past. Strange to think how really small the town was at one point.
Found one more CHIOSSO.
The court of honor, South Broad St., Philadelphia, designed by the Advisory Committee of Artists for the Victory Loan Campaign, April 21st to May 10th 1919 / Joseph Pennell
Great design by Joseph Pennell
Maybe you have seen this one.
I hadn't seen that one, but I am a fan of Pennell's work. Thanks.
Under Broad Street Station at Fifteenth Street - Joseph Pennell Lithograph - 1914
Wanamaker Store - Delivery Trucks - 1911
Wanamaker Store - Delivery Trucks and Wagons - 1911
Oak Hall - Wanamaker and Brown - SE Sixth and Market Streets - 1869
Interesting to see all these old trucks. Wanamaker had an array of horse drawn, electric, and gas delivery trucks at that time. For further reading, this section of "The Power Wagon" from January 1, 1913 is quite interesting.
Thanks for the link Sean. Lots of interesting historic info. Reading through on distribution, I have to wonder if John Wanamaker's being Postmaster General around 1890 gave him insights into delivery on a massive scale as with the post office.
I would have to agree that his experience did, considering he had remote distribution sites set up and stressed driver care of packages and their trucks.

Base-ball match between the "Athletics", of Philadelphia, Pa., and the "Atlantics", of Brooklyn, N.Y., played at Philadelphia, October 30, 1865
The two teams of what most considered to be the best baseball clubs in the country, the Athletics of Philadelphia and the Atlantics of Brooklyn met in an important game in Philadelphia at the Athletics home ground at Sixteenth Street and Columbia Avenue. The encounter was closely fought and was tied in the seventh inning but the visitors won the match in the ninth inning. A return was planned for Brooklyn.
