"North American" (Sept 26th)
This daily paper serves as a general source of current events, politics, and large sections of local ads.
It also has weekly features, including one every Wednesday entitled "Real Estate and General Building News"
that could prove helpful for research. The column is small and brief but lists news and events
relating to properties and buildings deemed noteworthy in Philadelphia and the immediate suburbs. Occassionally,
the paper also generally discusses architecture (demolitions, fires, etc.) on a national and international scale.
