Pennsylvania – A Historical Corner Photo
The renowned photographer Frederick De Bourg Richards has taken some of the oldest pictures ever taken in Pennsylvania. Although this photograph of a Pennsylvania street corner was taken in 1850. The same corner still looks pretty similar even today.
Richards wanted to catch some of the magical feelings that went through the old buildings at the intersection of Second and Chestnut streets, and he did just that. One of the buildings was owned by a man named John McAllister, who at the time was very well-known in the area.
