This is another of my old post card views of Frankford. It is hard to imagine but the building in the picture is the original library. I can remember seeing it when I was very young. At some time, in the 50s possibly, it was rebuilt in the modern style you see today. If you look on the side of the existing building you can still see part of the original foundation walls.
This was a Carnegie library. If you’re curious about that follow this link: http://www.statelibrary.state.pa.us/libraries/cwp/view.asp?a=11&Q=41240
