#TBT : AutoPark at the Gallery

#TBT AutoPark at the Gallery MallIf you’ve ever visited Chinatown or have gone shopping at The Gallery, you’ve more than likely gotten a glimpse of our  AutoPark at the Gallery Mall, which is the subject of this month’s #TBT!

Located at 44 North 9th Street, the AutoPark at the Gallery Mall houses 850 parking spaces and is only blocks away from Philly’s renowned Reading Terminal Market. Between Reading Terminal Market and Chinatown, you’re parking in a main hub for amazing Philly delicacies.

So after you’re done stuffing your faces, you can take the five minute stroll to the Convention Center or get shopping done at The Gallery. Either way — your car will be safe, sound and awaiting your return.

Let’s take a look into the past. The picture above is an artist’s sketch of the AutoPark at Gallery Mall from 1960. The garage itself was designed by architectural firm, Henry D. Dagit P. C. They clearly did a great job because it’s standing strong and will be for years to come!

Once again, Margery Sly, Director of the Special Collections Research Center at Temple University, is allowing us to share this gem of a picture.
