This great vintage photograph shows a group of street cart food vendors selling frankfurters and lemonade on the corner of Broad Street and Beaver Street around 1906. Typical of the era, you see horse-drawn carriages, child employees, and lots of well dressed people wearing hats. Fast forward to today and nothing in the original photograph exists today.

Check out the specimen page in the Library of Congress Digital Archives for more information on the vintage photograph.
