The Photo Elective – South Philly Circa 1981

South Philly - 1981As I wrote recently, I lived in New Jersey but commuted to the big city across the Delaware River to attend the Philadelphia College of Art. When I needed to shoot photographs for a photo elective course, I tended to stick close to home in South Jersey while my fellow students who lived in Philly tended to shoot in Philly. Above is a shot of The City of Brotherly Love by my fellow illustration student and future wife Tina Garceau. She’s a little foggy on the details as to where this was shot from, but obviously it’s someplace high in center city, and it looks to be in between Fourth and Fifth Streets looking South.

    Obviously a fairly old picture, considering the amount of real houses one sees… 🙂

    A lot of South Philly is still like that – there are businesses, but it’s mainly residential.
