John Wanamaker; merchant, religious leader, civil and political figure. Life long Philadelphian. Wanamaker’s store in Philly is now home to Macy’s . This statue is right outside City Hall. “Keep up the old standards and day by day raise them higher”
Another in my Philly series from last Friday’s cruise up (and back down) Broad Street. The turquoise of this newstand caught my eye. I think I would feed my magazine addiction far too often if I walked by one of these everyday.
