Taking Broad Street

Thousands of Antiwar Demonstrators March South on Broad Street
Broad and Spring Garden Streets

I don’t remember if I was leaning out of a window or standing up on the roof but I took this photo with a long telephoto lens from high up in or on the old Daily News building at Broad and Callowhill Streets. My original caption says 10,000 demonstrators were marching against war with Iraq. I have seen very few marches this big in Philadelphia.
