Summary Philadelphia Neighborhoods is a compendium of historic views of the major residential sections of Philadelphia. This book presents a snapshot into the past when old neighborhoods were not so old and when currently established ones were as yet new construction. Through the medium of postcards, readers are invited back to an era before automobiles dominated the streets, before many city roads were paved, and when the local grocery store was not located in a mall. Using chapters divided into subsections that detail the various regions of North, South, Southwest, and West Philadelphia, as well as the new" Northeast Philadelphia, the author chronicles the vibrant, diverse communities that have helped shape the city's rich history."
