Description

This photograph and accompanying caption are a depiction of a protest blocking Devereaux ave in face of looming development of that street. This protest and proposed development are a result of Philadelphia growing exponentially during and after World War II because of the increased manufacturing jobs and the great migration. Communities like this were caught in the crosshairs of a changing city.
