Macy's Dept Store, downtown Philadelphia
We stopped in to buy an umbrella, it was pouring rain and we had several blocks to walk to our hotel. Once inside, I was shocked to see this fabulous architecture....so here is a little history.

Located in the historic Wanamaker Building, Macy's Center City has more than 100 years of retail history.
It is recognized as one of the most architecturally significant retail spaces in the US and is a National Historical Landmark.
The undisputed highlight is its "Great Pipe Organ". Originally erected in 1904, the organ is one of the world's largest and exhibits excellent acoustics and incredible dynamic range.
