Pennsylvania Street

Here's a cool thing. See that painted figure on the wall, just to the right of the car? Well, here's a photo of Harry Houdini standing next to that figure in 1908 (which I presume is the same year this photo was taken, judging from the street banner—Thomas R. Marshall would have been campaigning for governor in 1908, because he took office in January, 1909).
