©Aero Service Corporation AS A BIRDMAN SEES THE CITY OF PENN In the foreground is the Philadelphia Museum of Art (see, also, Color Plate III and page 653), with Fairmount Parkway leading viaLogan Circle to City Hall Square. To the right of the Museum is the Schuylkill River, spanned at this point bytheCallowhill Street Bridge. Beyond the river are the new passenger coach yards of the Pennsylvania Railroad. Beyond them is seen the stately new Pennsylvania Station, and near by it the huge concrete platform on which the new post office will blossom. The station and the post office will each beequipped with airplane landings, the runways at right angles, so the ships may always land into the wind. In the upper right hand is seen theLeague Island section, and across the Delaware River lies New Jersey. Contrast this view of Philadelphia with the balloon picture on the opposite page, taken nearly forty years ago.
