The corner of Market and Fourth Streets in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania has undergone a major transformation when compared to the 1880 Baxter Panoramic Business Directory Images. A visual snapshot, these images are a clear reflection of the times in terms of economics, social context, and architectural history. Because the evolution of a city is intrinsically related to its history and planning, the comprehensive development of Philadelphias streets may serve as a cognizant reflection of the citys development.
