The date range of this volume is 1936 to 1941 with the bulk of the items from 1941. The images from 1936 are promotional photographs for the Delaware River Bridge Speed Line. Many of the photographs from 1941 have a heading saying “PTC: Elevated and Subway Views” and include, among other things, photos of the interior of 69th Street Terminal at rush hour; dogwood trees in bloom and boys swimming in Cobb’s Creek; the West Philadelphia Boxing Center; the “new” U.S. Post Office at 29th and 30th Streets; and numerous views of the Delaware River suspension bridge (now Benjamin Franklin Bridge). Finally, there are photos of unidentified individuals at rest or play, mostly men but also some women, including a soda fountain waitress in uniform and a cashier at rest in her booth.
