Berks County Christmas – Day 12 – 6th and Penn

The Twelfth day of Christmas – Cars pack Penn Street between 5th and 6th streets in the 1950s, as shoppers look for Christmas gifts. If there’s one thing hasn’t changed in the past 60+ years, its the swarm of shopping during the holiday season!

This during the 1940’s not 1930’s. The cars are 1940’s. I was probably in the crowd!
