Visible in the top right quadrant is the Montgomery Court Apartment complex, built the previous year. Just above it is the Narberth Public School and its playground, before a parking lot.

In the lower left corner, you can see the train trestle that extends over today's parking lot behind Haverford Ave., the old coal bins visible beneath. Just above it, 246 Haverford (Get Café in 2024) still retains the belltower from its time as an alternative fire station.

The Dallin Aerial Survey Company produced aerial photographs between 1924 and 1941. More than 8,000 can be viewed at The Hagley Museum Digital Archives from the collection of over 13,000.
