Today’s image, taken in the early-1950s from City Hall in Philadelphia, is a view of Reyburn Plaza while it was serving as a temporary parking lot. The roadway in the foreground is Filbert Street, and visible at the rear of the plaza is a music shell.
The vast majority of the automobiles parked in the plaza other than a couple of Packards and a few other high-end cars are fairly average everyday vehicles. Perhaps the most interesting car in the scene is a sleek two-tone Lincoln Zephyr coupe on the street.
