Most Philadelphian's would not recognize the architect Willis Gaylord Hale by name, but rather the looming icons of times passed. Located at Broad and Fairmount is the beautiful and eerie Divine Lorraine. Another building that always interested me is the aptly named Hale Building. It's located near Broad and Chestnut on the east side of Broad. The Hale Building used to be home to the Garrick Theater in 1909 (above) and more .
It has a really interesting history, created quite a stir and still remains to the day, well, somewhat. There's a great article in Hidden City Philadelphia here.
