Reader Submission Results In Old Photo Of Awesome Castle On Griscom Street

A reader emailed me an old photo of the the mansion for sale at the corner of Griscom and Dyre.


I’m liking it more without the shrubbery out front but I guess these days privacy is a concern.  Doing some photoshopping, I (think) I was able to make the wording on the bottom easier to read:


“RES. OF MR GEORGE T SALE FRANKLIN AND DYRE STS. FRANKFORD PA”.  Correct me if I’m wrong.   So I’m guessing Griscom Street used to be called Franklin.  Good times.
