In the far background, left to right, can be seen the Inquirer Building, the dome of the Basilica of Sts. Peter and Paul, and City Hall.

Callowhill Street no longer extends to 24th Street.  In the 1960s, traffic modifications isolated the Eakins Oval and created an entrance to the Vine Street Expressway, thus terminating Callowhill Street at 20th Street.  The area shown in these photographs has been occupied since 1959 by the Park Towne Place Apartment Homes.
