Philadelphia: Historic Exteriors and Interiors is a celebration of the city's architectural legacy. Vintage postcards document both the interiors and exteriors of some of Philadelphia's oldest and most well-known structures, including grandiose department stores, elegant restaurants, and the original terminal of the Philadelphia International Airport. From laborers toiling in their overheated factories to the elegance of a Center City ballroom or presidential suite, and from the whacky comic opera stage to the legitimate theater, the postcards featured in this volume allow readers to experience the nostalgia of Philadelphia in years past.

Exceptional in that it doesn't just regurgitate the same tired photos in a different order - mostly new material throughout. Read full review
