Early '60s photos in Philadelphia

(August 6, 20128) These two photographs were shot on June 6, 1961, on the streets of Philadelphia.

The top photo was shot at the corner of Passyunk and 17th streets where Hal Woodard, a broadcast personality from WFIL-TV was set up in the station's mobile studio. Beyond the trailer on the left are parked cars and the right side of the photo is the Southside Rambler used car lot.

Below is a second photograph of the Southside Rambler service garage taken on the other side of the WFIL-TV trailer.
