I remember that. Is that peculiar to Philadelphia? It never occurred to me. Anyway, it seems to me that there was one of those plaques in the ground around Wanamaker’s and I think that once a year, they roped it off to make a legal point that it was not open to the public. What happens with 24/7 markets?
Reminds me, what is the Penna Dept of Agriculture? When I was growing up, every packaged baked goods was regd with them. I thought nothing of it, assuming that if I went to NJ, it would be regd NJDA. The only place in NJ we ever went to was Atlantic City (to swim; there was no gambling then) and everything including the tourists was imported from Philly anyway, so I kind of decided it was an aberration. But when I went to Europe and even Japan and found at least some of the baked goods still regd PA DA, I really began to wonder if it wasn’t really the secret government of the universe.
