General Patterson's House, Oct. 1882


Southwest corner of Thirteenth & Locust Sts., Philadelphia, Pa.

Gen. Patterson's house is a very grand 2 1/2 storey mansion with attached hothouse. It is fronted by a low wrought-iron(?) latticed fence which changes to a low stone fence extending a great distance to the corner and around the corner. The house is far left of center. It faces Locust St. To its left are two other massive fuilding, not identifiable. A single set of trolley tracks travels along Locust St. A yellow trolley, marked 13 & 15 Street is on the tgracks. Traveling from the opposite direction is a closed passenger coach with match white horses. A carriage stepping stone and fire hydrant(?) are at curbside. Nine pedestrians, male and female, are in view. It is Autumn. The many trees have brown leaves.This is an elegant scene.
