I have been trying to get a feel for the geography of downtown Philadelphia, staying as we are on Broad Street, south of the monster City Hall.

Nearly opposite is 1515 Chestnut (I can’t find the name of its architect):-
Along the street is an odd, tall, thin building with immensely elongated columns and an inscription A. POMERANTZ & CO, designed by Edward P. Simon and David B. Bassett for Amen Pomerantz’s office outfitting company:-
1606, Chestnut (as you can see):-
