Absolutely terrific photo of old (well, not THAT old) Philadelphia, with the Benjamin Franklin Bridge looming in the distance.
I spent a happy hour trying to find this spot on Google Maps so I could see what it looks like today. I'm not satisfied I found the exact street, but I believe it's Race Street or North Front Street or maybe even Quarry Street. It doesn't look like those old buildings are there. Here's as close as I got:
Found in "The Plot Genie Index" by Wycliffe A. Hill. Published by Ernest E. Gagnon, 1934.
If you'd like a bigger and cleaner version of the photograph, here it is.
