Philly: Then and Now

The Institute for Quality Communities at the University of Oklahoma has overlapped two photos of Center City - one from 2014 and one from 1965, to demonstrate how much the city has changed over the last 60 years. The website reads: "I-95, along the Delaware River east of Center City Philadelphia, is one major change visible here, along with highway interchanges and connections into the city. The Pennsylvania Convention Center also takes up several square blocks. Additionally, near the center of the photo, a large enclosed mall replaced several blocks as the city attempted to compete with the suburbs." [Institute for Quality Communities]
