POOLEY FURNITURE COMPANY, I
(click image to enlarge)
Located in the heart of North Philadelphia, this former manufacturing and shipping facility was once home to the Pooley Furniture Company – maker of fine furniture and cabinetry. Although founded in 1892, records show as early as 1900 that this was the site for their business. Gutted and in fantastic shape, perhaps this building will one day be re-purposed.
For a detailed history, with emphasis on Pooley's connections to early radios, go here.
