Rob from Albrightsville, PA:

“The last 2 are also on Chestnut St – note the Bonwit Teller Sign in the background of the wider shot. Not sure they had stores in NY but I think Bonwit Teller was the Bloomies of the 50’s & 60’s in Phila.”

“Here’s a couple more from Philadelphia. The one with Liberty was taken around 18th & Chestnut. Can’t tell what it reads, professional something…. but the cell Antennas and the Liberty Tower behind it make a clear statement of progress…” Rob from Albrightsville, PA

Interestingly enough Rob, this sign is one of the only signs I’ve shot in Philly over ten years ago while visiting my friend Joe- who owned a home on this block. Great shot Rob! Never noticed the older sign above- “T.J. Cobourn Grocery.”
