Dallett's Old Soap Manufactory, 1884

Northeast corner of Tenth and Callowhill Streets, Philadelphia, Pa.

An interesting and attractive white building, possible an octagon, shows three sides. It has "Soap & Candle Manufactory" painted on it. Benches are on either side of the front door. Fanlights are over the two doors which are visible. The side of the building facing Tenth Street also houses "Lyons Stoves & Ranges." Numerous sample stoves stand curbside under a protective awning. "Klinger Brewery" is farther along Tenth Street and in the other direction, along Callowhill Street at # 923, is a store selling segars. The Callowhill Street horsecar is passing this building. At the left margin another horsecar, which travels along Tenth and Eleventh Streets, enters the scene. Below this horsecar are the words "Ridge Ave." Another set of horsecar tracks enters the scene from Ridge Avenue and merges with the tracks on Tenth Street. A leafless tree and gaslight complete the scene along with the three pedestrians.
