This has always been my favorite picture of Philly: http://www.shorpy.com/node/22072

Shorpy has the great hi-res version of it too. Pretty great photo quality for being so old.

There are a few Facebook pages dedicated to old Philadelphia photos. I follow a couple of them. Nice to see them pop up on the regular.
