Bicentennial Era Tourist Video Urges You To "Find Philadelphia"

New, 2 comments

They sure don't make 'em like they used to. This tourist video from the bicentennial era shows a much cleaner Philadelphia back before the 'gentlemen's agreement' that stated no building would be taller than City Hall was broken in 1987. Speaking of which, are those antennas on top of William Penn's hat? Keep an eye out for Penn Jillette juggling knives and apples at 08:44!
