Old and New on the Schuylkill

Old and New on the Schuylkill

Previously I had posted a wider view of this iconic corner in Philadelphia...but it was cluttered with vehicular traffic.
The pillared building is the 30th Street Station, behind which stands the Cira Center Building.
The Eagle carving is one of many animal sculptures that grace the Market Street Bridge (that spans the Schuylkill River).

Gorgeous cityscape, Michelle, and I love the juxtaposition of the old and very striking! I once posted a shot with the same title (see last page in my gallery)...of course Lafayette IN does not have the grandeur of Philly!
