Location - N. 21st St., W. Lehigh Ave., N 20th St., W. Somerset St.
Disclaimer - NONE of these photos are mine. They were generously donated to me by Bruce Kuklick. Some of these photos are rare and have never been seen before. If you get a chance, read his book "to everything a season". It is about Connie Mack stadium and the urban change of North Philadelphia.
Again, many thanks to Bruce and his wonderful contribution.
