    Fascinated that the professor, a grown man before the Reading Terminal built, still calling it the "Twelfth Street Market" - what was there before the "terminal market".

    It's also interesting to see the smaller lots get consolidated for larger buildings, especially the old Pennsylvania RR freight station on 13th and Market transform to Wanamaker's in the same time frame.
