Detailed Collection Information

Historical Note

The Regional Planning Federation of the Philadelphia Tri-State District had its beginnings in the meetings of a group of municipal reformers at the City Club in early 1924. Their goal was the development of a comprehensive regional planning program for the Philadelphia Tri-State district and in May 1928 the Regional Planning Federation was incorporated. The major accomplishment of the federation was the publication of the Regional Plan for the Philadelphia Tri-State District in 1932 and the various surveys taken in preparation for the Plan. In the years following the publication of the plan the Federation became increasingly overshadowed by the various New Deal agencies and finally suspended its activities indefinitely in 1941.

Description of Collection

Collection contains minutes, bylaws, organizational records, reports, financial records, news clippings, correspondence, and speeches by or related to the Regional Planning Federation of the Philadelphia Tri-State District. Photographs consist primarily of high altitude aerials shot in 1928 by the Aero Service Corporation, including low altitude aerials of various areas including Center City, Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Delaware Avenue, Delaware River, Fairmount Park, and the Benjamin Franklin Bridge.
