COLORFUL CORNERS OF THE CITY OF HOMES BACK TO NATURE IN THE HEART OF A CITY Wissahickon Creek cuts a canyonlike ravine of beauty through northern Philadelphia, joining the Schuylkill River and the main part of Fairmount Park at Manayunk. In the background, like an old Roman viaduct of southern France, swings the graceful arch of Walnut Lane Bridge, one of the largest concrete spans in the world. © National Geographic Society Finlay Photographs by Clifton Adams and Edwin L. Wisherd BEAUTIFUL SUBURBS ENCIRCLE PHILADELPHIA From manorial estates to humble cottages and row-houses, Philadelphia is a city of homes. Forty per cent of the wage earners of the Quaker City own or are buying their own domiciles. Among Philadelphia's finest residential sections are: Chestnut Hill, Germantown, Wyncote, "The Main Line," West Chester, Haddonfield and Moorestown, the last two across the Delaware in New Jersey.
