     History
    This building is the last remnant of the once sprawling Philco complex which took up multiple city blocks just east of this building. This building was part of the companies cabinet manufacturing operation, making cabinets for old radios.

    Philco, which began as a battery company, soon switched to Radio manufacture and was one of the most successful in the world, not only expanding their Philadelphia facilities to more buildings but also opening more factories in the UK, US, and Canada. In the 1950s they expanded their production into televisions, air conditioners and other electronics. The company was bought out by Ford in 1961.
