Title Woman on unit block of West Chelten Avenue
Description Black and white 1941 view of woman walking on the south side of the unit block of West Chelten Avenue. The west portion of the First Presyterian Church is visible on the other side of the street in the background. A sign advertising that a business is air conditioned is visible at the immediate left. Based on the number of signs seen in this collection advertising this amenity, air conditioning was indeed quite a selling point just before World War II.
