It was the home of the Philadelphia National Bank for decades, and the initials 'PNB' can be seen at the top of the building.
This is the tallest office building in Philadelphia east of Broad Street.
This building was constructed by John Wanamaker, an early Philadelphia retailing magnate.
In 1926, when the bell arrived fom England, the top of the building was home to the largest ringing bell in the United States, called the "Founder's Bell". It was cast in tribute to John Wanamaker and can be heard for 25 miles.
