Then and Now: 17th and Ludlow looking south, Philadelphia


The shops on the right side of the original photo were replaced by the United Plaza building (and plaza) in 1976. The hotel building now that houses the Westin was finished in 1990 alongside Two Liberty Place and its enclosed shopping gallery and rotunda.
