then and now

I posted a few examples of these a while back. I hope to be able to show more of them as I find them. I'm a sucker for all things vintage.

Dwight D. Eisenhower headquarters, 1420 Walnut Street, 1952
(Ike won.)

Holts Cigars, and Ashton's upstairs cigar bar.

Rittenhouse Square, 18th and Walnut, early 1900's.

I took this with my phone yesterday…

The big buildings of older eras are now pygmies. Love the idea.
