Another week, another impressive showing of borough knowledge from Phoenixville Patch's readers. The fastest to the draw in the most recent iteration of Then and Now was Ike.
Below, via the Historical Society of the Phoenixville Area, is the full explanation of last week's photo:
The Italianate building was constructed in 1863 as an office building for the Phoenix Iron Company. Ruthann Maxfield in the 1940’s is in front of the building at what was 121 BridgeStreet (it is now 101 Bridge Street). Ruthann remains a member of the Historical Society of the Phoenixville Area. The building is currently a restaurant.
