This is another picture I shot back when I was in art school in the early 1980s. Illustration majors were required to take a pricey photography course. As a sophomore, I didn’t know my ass from my elbow so I shot a bunch pretentious crap and what I thought would get me through the class. The more interesting shots had nothing to do with the classroom assignments. I took them to simply finish off a roll for processing. I would take pictures of the big bad city of Philadelphia and places close to the campus of what once was the Philadelphia College of Art.
This is a view of 13th Street looking North probably in the Fall of 1982.
I walked 13th Street on my way home from work to see the site of the old Full Moon Saloon. The awning remains, but sadly not the sign. It looked like the place was in between owners so maybe it will be the Full Moon again.
