Welcome back to Cornerspotter, Curbed’s game where we ask readers to guess the location or building in Philly based on a historical photograph. Yesterday, the corner in question was originally a popular coffee shop, then turned into a general store as seen in the photo. Today, the corner spot is home to a company called WebLinc.
Curbed Philly readers proved their history chops this week, with several folks correctly guessing the right location: the southwest corner of Front and Market streets. The site has a historical marker noting it as the original site of the London Coffee House.
Commenter morrisK and multiple readers on social identified the right corner. Special shout-out to Firth and Wilson, the Fishtown bike shop that made the correct guess first!
Thanks for playing, and stay tuned for another chance to play Cornerspotter!
