Notes: "This view is westward from City Hall beneath the bridge connecting Broad Street Station with the Arcade Building. The bridge, built around 1902, afforded pedestrians access to the station, and connected the station with Pennsylvania Railroad offices in the Arcade Building. Beyond the bridge at the right is the wall of the train shed and the old "Chinese Wall" extending along Market Street."--OPEP, p. 164.
Notes: Row of Market Street ferries cars and tracks on street. Horse-drawn carriages and wagons also on street. People on ferries, crossing the street and reading beneath columns on sidewalk.
