Sixth and Vine Streets, Philadelphia, Pa.

At the left in this view is a park or private property surrounded by a wrought iron fence. Marble pillars are at its gate. Numerous mature trees, now bare, line both streets. The low white Penn National Bank sits of the corner with elegant red brick townhomes to its left and around the corner on Sixth. That home is identified as the "Late Residence of Tucker Cambell South above Vine St." The Fifth and Sixth Streets horsecar which has Frankford as its destination is to the right. Horsecar tracks are visible on both streets. Ten adult figures are visible in the scene.
