Interesting Sidelights of a Day's News graphically told by the Camera

Subject

Philadelphia, Evening Ledger, Broad Street Station, Germantown, Suffrage

Description

An article from the Evening Ledger called "Interesting Sidelights of a Day's News Graphically Told by the Camera" depicts daily Philadelphia life in December 1915. The article, which focuses primarily on white life, is both a comparison and contrast to daily life of black Philadelphians; the article depicts celebrations in Germantown and portrays a happy and exciting atmosphere when describing the Broad Street Station, where many blacks migrating north had to pass through to enter the city. Also noted, however, is the portrayal of civil rights; in this case, women's rights as the article depicts suffrage rights activists fighting for gender equality amid the racial inequality of the city at the time.
