Cherubs Watching

September 6, 2011 | by Kim Miller









This transit terminal at 33rd & Dauphin Streets was built in 1905, a gateway between the Strawberry Mansion neighborhood and Fairmount Park. In 2007 SEPTA secured permission from the City Planning Commission to demolish the terminal and replace it with a modern facility (the project doesn’t appear in the 2012 SEPTA capital budget). Now four years on, the cherubs are still keeping watch over Dauphin Street.
