Northwest corner of 11th & Girard Streets, 1885

Eleventh & Girard Sts., Philadelphia, Pa.

On view is a row of four double townhouses, four and a half storys high. The simple front plots are protected by low ornate wrought iron fencing. Identical wrought iron railings divide the front steps. To the right the No.2 trolley enters the scene; it travels on Tenth & Eleventh Streets. A closed carriage is at the opposite margin. It has just discharged a visitor to one of the townhouses. A gas lamp is at the curner curbside. The trees are bare. There are several pedestrians in this very elegant neighborhood.

Location: Library Company Philadelphia
call number: P.2298.139
