North side of Union Street east from Fourth Street, 1881

Philadelphia, Pa.

This is a residential scene. The home of Miss Amelia Peters is marked with a cross, and the information given that she "Lived here 50 years-August 1893." The houses are 2 1/2 and 3 1/2 stories. Next to Miss Peters' home is a very wide walled garden. There appears to be a "Loy Tailor" in business on the other side of the Peters property. The four trees at curbside are in leaf.
