We went to downtown Philadelphia to a unique museum that my son wanted to visit (http://www.wagnerfreeinstitute.org), but on our way there we passed a building with a big "Packard" logo out front. It has been a number of years since I drove down Broad St. and don't remember ever seeing this before, but I am sure it was there just not so highlighted. Anyway here is what I found out about the building. I plan to go back another time to really check it out.
