Scope and Content

This project series documents Cornelia Hahn Oberlander's landscape project for the improvement of an unidentified park bounded by Cleveland Street, Fountain Street, 18th Street and Norris Street in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Oberlander worked on this project in 1950 while working for the Citizen's Council on City Planning (CCCP). The project was commissioned by the 18th & Cleveland Streets Improvement Association. The project consists in redesigning the back street for the whole city block by adding paving, tree planting and a central patch of lawn.

The project series only contains a reprographic copy of the proposed landscaping.
