    Thanks for posting these. The street lamps (i think they look like a tree of lights) in the picture of Broad St Station are now over near 30th st station. I wonder if they were moved there by PRR, the city or if the street lights around CC used to look like that.

    REAR OF 33 1/2 CATHERINE STREET, FROM NORTHWEST

    The house was one of the remaining frame houses in Philadelphia built before 1796, which marked the introduction of a law prohibiting construction of wooden buildings. Its original wood siding, found in the rear wall, is a good example of 18th century sheathing type.
