Edwin J. Cummings Family and Steam Coal House




“CUMMINGS COAL”


Take a look inside this structure here on Hidden City Philadelphia.

This photo, taken a block south and dated 1901, shows “CUMMINGS COAL” emblazoned on the railroad viaduct overpass. Unfortunately it is too far away to see the structures.


Here is the location in a photo dated 8/15/1894. The buildings are different (all of them gone at this point), suggesting this remaining structure was built later.

    The picture does not match the building.

    Regardless is a beautiful building dating back to 1840.
