The Home Depot Tower

We live within a mile of this tower so I see it every day. So why not photograph it? I mean you can see it from just about every where in the Lower Northeast section of Philadelphia.

Here is the story:

1920 was the year that Sears, Roebuck & Co. expanding eastward from Chicago, opened their large complex on Adams Avenue & The Roosevelt Blvd. in Northeast Philadelphia. The complex consisted of 9 story office building/mail order processing center, and the iconic 14 story clock tower. On October 31, 1994, the Sears Tower and complex was imploded. This tower is the only structure left of this Philadelphia landmark.
