Contrasts in the USA

The United States of America has many faces and many contrast. How could it be else in such a big country.

Philadelphia - South 7th street

Walking in Philadelphia from Washington Square to the City Hall we went through the S 7th Street where I took this picture. You can see the backside of the building in the Sansomstreet on the left side and the Franklin Residences in the S 9th Street. On the right side of this alley are the backsides of the building in the Chestnutstreet.
The fire-escapes and the garbage containers dominates this kind of street, the pavement is bad, but you must realize that it is just the backyard of the buildings. The street had no name and is used for escape routes and garbage collection.
But the contrast with the streets it connects is enormous.

In the WORKSHOP you can see almost the same scene in a window-shop reflection/selfie. Direction 180° from main picture.
