Overview


Philadelphia: South of Market and East of Broad offers a whirlwind journey to the older regions of the city. Along the way, readers will travel the length of South Broad Street from city hall toward the Naval Yard and the former sports complex and will wander by Market Street's former bustling shops--such as Gimbel's, Wanamaker's, and Leary's quaint bookstore--to the street's terminus at the Delaware River port and the Camden ferries. They will become reacquainted with Independence Square, Washington Square, and the magnificent buildings that once surrounded them and will also revisit South Philadelphia and its Italian Market. These images grant an opportunity to explore Philadelphia's streets, peer into its historic nooks, and seek out buildings that have long since gone the way of the wrecking ball.
