Photos of Port Richmond, Philadelphia, USA

When I was laid off back in 2002, I took a few days from searching for a new job, and went around and took several photos of places in Port Richmond. I'm glad I did this, because some of the places have changed, and now that I no longer live there, they are not as common place as they used to be.

Please enjoy.

Updated: May 2008, did a few updates on some of the pictures, how things have changed. No longer living in Port Richmond, I may do a new picture blog on where I live now. Just have to get a few pictures together.
