Then and Now: Answer Edition
The answer to last week's photo challenge is revealed.
Per usual, it was another tremendous performance from Then and Now readers. The winner of last week's contest, clocking in within an hour of posting, is Ike, who correctly identified the photo as being of the corner of Nutt Road and Gay Street. Below, via the Historical Society of the Phoenixville Area, is the full explanation.
Known as the Pennypacker house, this residence was on the southeast corner of Nutt Road and Gay Street. The greenhouses behind the home supplied flowers for the Pennypacker & Son Florist which operated for a number of years from this location. Although the flower supplierand location has changed, the Pennypacker Florist is possibly the oldest continuously operatingbusiness in Phoenixville.
