Today’s featured “Philadelphia Evening Bulletin” press image was taken by Joseph Wasko on April 18, 1957, near the scene of an accident on Wissahickon Drive to document “Traffic Congestion” in the City. What appears to be the Wissahickon Creek is visible on the left side of the photo.
The newest vehicle visible is a 1957 Plymouth two-door sedan at the head of the right-hand lane, the second car in the left-hand lane two is a 1956 Pontiac. The majority of the other vehicles visible in the photo date back to the earlier 1950s. Please share with us what you find of interest in this photograph courtesy of the Temple University Libraries.
