This 1915 postcard view shows North Seventh Street from Philadelphia to Water streets.
Note that the steps up to Vinegar Hill were not yet constructed. The Star Theater was on the northeast corner of Philadelphia and Seventh streets, where Brody’s department store would be built.
Contrast this photo with the newly restyled North Seventh Street today. This old photo is from the collection of county historian John Busovicki, of Clymer. (Submitted photo)
