Southwest corner of Eighth and Callowhill Streets, 1873

Philadelphia, Pa.

A light green 2 1/2 storey townhouse faces Eighth St. To the left a decorative green fence enclosed a garden area with leaved trees. To the right, along Callowhill Street a plain wooden fence encloses the rear of the townhouse property. There is a two storey building to the rear of the townhouse which appears to be a business establishment. It may or may not be part of the townhouse. There are, however, no signs indicating this is a business rather than a private home. Two horse trolleys are in the scene. One carries the name "Park," and the destination, "Callowhill and Market." This vehicle is, in fact, traveling on Callowhill Street and the other, on Eighth Street. There are 19 adult figures in the scene, male and female.
