Walking West on Locust

Walking West on LocustHere’s another shot of the corner of Broad & Locust shot by the fabulous Tina Garceau back at the dawn of the 1980s. It seems she liked shooting at this particular corner which is about a block from where the Philadelphia College of Art was once situated.

Notice the Eagle II in the background which served food and libations 24 hours a day. (I always wondered if there was an Eagle I and where it was located.) Also notice Andrew’s Discount on the corner which has been a restaurant now for a few decades. I’ve heard that the whole corner is slated for demolition to be replaced by something considerably less interesting.

    One wonders what the little old lady had seen in her life?

    True. It was 1981 in this picture, and this lady had probably seen most of the twentieth century.
