I-95 Re-Construction (Late Feb.)

PGW hardhats working on the I-95 re-construction discovered this old house foundation, dating back to the mid-1850s, right near where Richmond St. would touch Girard Ave. It was one of many houses bulldozed in the 1950s and 1960s to make way for the highway, displacing many area residents.
