Frankford Arsenal - Tacony Street - Philadelphia - 1940 - Gearing Up for War

                                                                                                                                                              Hagley Digital Archives -1940

A snipet of Frankford Arsenal along Tacony Street from Bridge Stree (top left) to Kennedy Street (bottom right), James Street in rear (top right).

I have to think that in 1940 when this photo was taken, the U.S. was sending a lot of war aid to Britain. Hence the need to tear down the houses on James Street for daytime parking. 

Tacony Street Houses torn down around 1960 to make way for I-95 across from Arsenal.
