Every Monday, I'll be spotlighting a different classic Kodachrome slide that I've picked up, and trying where I can to detail the who, what, when, where, why, and how (much) of the image:
When: Presumed to be about January 1, 1954. The Red Border mount reads "Kodachrome Transparency" in the 1950-1955 style.
Where: Philadelphia, PA. Having a good familiarity with Philadelphia, I thought I would be able to pretty readily pinpoint where this was, and thought this to be somewhere near Market and 2nd Streets. Wrong, and I should have known better as the shadows are not at all conducive to a morning parade on an east-west street. This actually looks southwesterly from the east side of Broad Street above Locust Street. The Shubert and the prominent building in the backdrop remain, both with degrees of modification from their appearance over 60 years ago.
