  1. Any date associated with this postcard?

  2. Hard to say without looking at the back, but I’d guess around 1910.

  3. Any idea which corner of Broad and Green?

    • Hi Eric. It was at 550 North Broad Street. It was torn down in 1961. Benjamin Franklin High School stands in its place.

      • According to google maps, 550 Broad is the SE corner of Broad & Green while Ben Franklin HS is on the NW corner. Is this correct?

        • Hey Joe,

          The second location of Central was at southeast corner of Broad and Green Streets. I believe this postcard depicts the third location of Central which was at Broad, Green, 15th, and Brandywine Streets.

          550 N. Broad Street is the address of Ben Franklin High School: https://www.philasd.org/bfhs/
