Then and Now: 1324 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia


Here's a shot of the former Barricini Candy shop at 1324 Chestnut Street, several doors down from the Bartons Bonbonniere shown in a recent post. Barricini's signage demonstrates that neon commercial lighting can be rather tasteful if done properly. The former Barricini and Famous Maid spaces are now occupied by the Greenhouse market and deli.
