    Union Burial Ground Society 6th Street, below Washington Avenue

    The Union Burial Ground was located at the NE corner of 6th & Federal Streets in South Philly, was incorporated in 1841 as an "association" cemetery, catered to the poorer residence who as association members could obtain a decent family plot for $10.00. This cemetery was called Sixth Street Union to differentiate it from another Union Burial Ground at 10th & Washington Avenue. In 1970 the cemetery which contained the graves of over 100 Civil War Soldiers and Sailors and their families was neglected and vandalized. That same year the site was sold for use as a supermarket. About 2,000 graves were dug up, the remains boxed and then reburied in Philadelphia Memorial Park in Frazer, Chester County.

    In at least one shot that had City Hall in it the shot seems to have been taken from above it. It's not life or death just wondering.

    The tombstone salesman is a dead ringer for Tom Waits.

    Eastburn Mariners' Bethel Church (Presbyterian), Front & Delancey Streets, 1961

    The Eastburn Mariners' Bethel Church was one of the oldest seamen's merge with the Third Presbyterian Church. A fire several years later destroyed the interior. A heavy rainfall on August 14, 1977 completely destroyed the church, which was then under consideration for its restoration.
