For anyone who has been in downtown Philadelphia it has likely be difficult to notice that the building at 11th and Market is in the process of being demolished. What I noticed was all the traditional detailing that was hidden behind all that marble and metal cladding! It is amazing what is discovered when buildings are torn down - what is unfortunate is that very few people of the current or future eras are going to have the opportunity to enjoy it. Below are some snapshots I managed to get close to the site. I just hope someone is salvaging something from this building! This is one of those many moments when I wish I had a huge warehouse just to save some of these architectural elements.
