Print and Picture Collection
Halftone reproduction of a photograph showing a sidewalk and buildings at the intersection of Sixteenth Street with Passyunk and Snyder Avenues in South Philadelphia. Image used in a magazine article to illustrate the city's neglect of such attenuated sites.
Caption: Washington frequently selects as parks attenuated points caused by two streets intersecting obliquely; thus such parks are bounded on but two sides by streets. The illustration shows a Philadelphia opportunity at Sixteenth Street and Passyunk Avenue.
From an unidentified source.
