Spring Garden Library

The Spring Garden Library at 17th and Spring Garden Streets was built with money from Andrew Carnegie in 1907, land donated by Baldwin Locomotive Works, and architecture design by Horace Trumbauer in the Collegiate Gothic style. It closed in 1955 and was demolished shortly after.

The Fairmount Market functioned as the local Whole Foods from 1850 to the 1920's. Notice the nice stone and wrought iron fencing around the vents from the tunnel below Pennsylvania Avenue.
