Southeast corner of Seventh and Callowhill Streets, 1883

Seventh and Callowhill Streets, Philadelphia, Pa.

In the center of the scene is a low gray market shed trimmed with white with horsecar tracks curving around the edge of the building. This appears to be the terminus for the #8 Callowhill Street horsecar. Passengers appear to be waiting for transportation. A man in a red shirt pushes a loaded handcart. To the left the corner building houses "Sensman & Son Printers." At the street level of the same building is "N. Ferree Lightner Coal." On the other side of the market shed, on the corner, is "Family Grocery" which offers "Choice Tea." Farther along Callowhill Street a painter has his business in #632. There are numerous adults in this scene and two horsecars. Three of the females are carrying their shopping baskets.
