||Taylor, Frank H. (Frank Hamilton), 1846-1927
||Some Spring Street Homes
||Depicts a row of small townhouses on a cobblestone street slated for demolition in 1923 to build the Benjamin Franklin Bridge.
||The tripods of the Delaware River bridge engineers have been set up in Spring Street, a little home thoroughfare leading west
from Front Street and this group of old-time homes is marked for removal. Just beyond them in an angle are two other relics
of colonial days also awaiting, in 1923, early destruction. One of these, according to tradition, is the house which was
the first home, in Philadelphia, of the Boston boy, Benjamin Franklin.
