Work Type
Text Front: Philadelphia- Chestnut Street east of 6th Street. A glimpse of the district wherein a number of the largest financial and banking concerns are centered. The facade of the Old State House shown to the right of the picture is no less imposing than the towering heights of the modern office buildings surrounding. In Colonial days this section was the very heart of the city. To-day it is yet the greatest centre of interest and activity while the march of the progress has carried the centre of the city and its population considerably further west from this historic point.; PM Date: 9/18/1911.; Sender Text: Mamma sends her love. Dear Aunt Ellie, I often think of you & wonder how you are? We are all well as usual. Aren't you coming down soon to see us? I wish you would. Mamma, I went shopping all afternoon didn't get home till 5.30. It is now 11.30 & time we were in bed. Write soon & come down soon, Lovingly yours Mae. 621 Walnut St.
