    Great shot! I remember my Dad taking me here in the mid-1950s, not nearly as elegant then!

    Beautiful. Wonderful POV. I was born in Philly. My folks moved from there when I was still a baby. Hope to get back there one day.

    My first and last visit there was in 1958. It was run down. Now, it has been revived. Nice to know, and this is a handsome capture!

    Nice pov and color! I probably could have gone there the last time I was down. I do believe the original cobblestones still make up the street!
