Reproduction of a photograph, published in Fortune magazine, June 1936, illustrating an article on transportation in Philadelphia. Hand traffic signals (shown lower right) control the movement of traffic at this busy intersection. Automobiles share the road with trolleys, and the sidewalks are teeming with pedestrians.  The big pillars of the John Wanamaker department store can be seen on the right edge.
