View of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, 1929

This 1929 photo shows the effects of a fire which burned down the Broad Street Station at Broad and Market.  The site was not fully razed until the 1950’s, but you can still see where John F Kennedy Boulevard and Philadelphia’s high-rise district would go.
