Republican Club – Cresson Street, Manayunk


Unreadable signage on second story of building.
Only can make out letter “B” in center. Interesting dimensional shadow effect, similar to engraving (like type on US paper currency).

UPDATE – Reader Dave suggests “I believe the middle word wher the ‘B’ s visible is PUBLIC. I think the third word may be CLUB.” Thanks!



Visible in these 1930s photos, to the right, above the head of the closest worker.
