This is a shot I took back in 1982 at around the same time I took this shot recently used by Philadelphia Magazine. This Woolworth’s was on Chestnut Street just off of Broad. It had everything you could want from a Five & Ten, and the place was always packed. It’s now an upscale furniture store that is nowhere near as packed as the former tenant and the basement is an enormous art supply store.
I took this shot to use up a roll of film for a photography class I had at the time. These frame wasters are a lot more interesting than the acts of art I was trying to commit at the time.
