"Bruxelles St., corner of N. Broad. Kindly note sanitary meat market and grocery store, modern Barber shop, modern oil Station & Repair combined located at the corner of Bruxelles and Dueles [sic]. The vacant ground cor. of N. Broad & Hope St., owned by Mr. A. Ponzo where the bank wanted to be located but the officials of the bank found out that it was zoned so they withdrew their petition from your honorable body the Commission Council not to unzone this particular spot but purchased a site on Bruxelles near Law in the Business Center."

Photograph submitted as an exhibit at a public hearing in re: the [1929] Comprehensive Zone Law. For more information on that zoning process click HERE.
