Temple University: City Parks Association Photographs

In the past several years, the Temple University Libraries have expanded their digital collections to include images from the Housing Association of the Delaware Valley, the influential Impulse Dance Annuals, and clippings from the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin. This particular collection brings together over 1200 photographs from the City Parks Association of Philadelphia. The Association was chartered in 1888, and it features images that document the city's parks and general living conditions around the city. The archive contains some fascinating shots of notable intersections throughout the city, including 17th and Market and 19th and the Parkway as well as a number of great aerial images of South Philadelphia. It's quite fascinating to see the Benjamin Franklin Parkway before the construction of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and those photos should not be missed.
