Delorean Time Machine: Finney & Son | Naked Philly

Delorean Time Machine: Finney & Son | Naked Philly

Just north of the intersection of 12th & Spring Garden stands one of the stranger buildings in a neighborhood that’s experienced a rebirth of late.  Though the building has occupied its current location at 531 N. 12th St. for well over 150 years, it has actually seen far more change in the last 30 years than in its entire prior history.  The structure began as a family owned business called Finney & Son, noted manufacturers of tombstones.  The unmarked location of the business, founded in 1850, is shown here in an image taken from Hexamer & Locher’s 1858 Philadelphia Atlas.
