    The Toll bros condo building takes up the majority of that block where those houses once stood. Do you think that gap between the warehouse and the trinity is Pine Street or just a gap in the street wall? There appears to be one surviving structure on that block and I'm trying to figure out if it could be the one between the warehouse and the one with the cupola (which is super cool BTW):

    The gap on the 1875 map next to the Alburger warehouse is a walkway to a Quaker school in the middle of the block. 404 S Front st is I think the center of your photo - same 404 lot as in 1895 map below. Lots don't usually change a lot on maps over time. They leave an audit trail of sorts in history. I would also say that the Toll Bros Condos probably borrowed the idea of the school in the middle of the block design idea to build their property or extend it to the middle of the block. Just a thought.

    By design 404 may indeed be the last surviving building from the photo, mostly blocked from view by trees.

    Why does the illustration show (what looks like) a three-story building, while the interior shots show a four- (or even five) story building ??
    Did they add on at some point ??

    I do not know when they expanded the building to include a skylight. Would have to guess it happened between 1879 and 1891.

    There is this if you prefer: 1126-1128 Chestnut Street.

    Maybe as early as 1880 ??
    16 Mar 1880, Page 2 - The Philadelphia Inquirer at Newspapers.com
    (they had moved in here in 1878, it looks like...had been a music store and art gallery before that)

    But anyway, thanks: the drawing closely matches the photo so it does indeed look like they added floors.
