I’m 99% certain this painting by Emphraim Rubenstein (via) is of the houses that used to stand on the north side of the 1900 block of East Broad Street (right down from these buildings).
Yes, that’s the north side of East Broad. Facing the houses, 19th (aka Cedar St.) would be off to the left, and 20th St. off to the right. The church with no steeple would be off to the right across the street.
Now there is a brick building housing, I believe, an insurance company, on this block.The demo of the houses on this block was “demo by neglect” as the owner just let them fall apart and the city didn’t do anything about it.
I remember those houses.
