(Click on the photo to see a larger version)

View of the Action In The Afternoon set in 1955 from the roof of the WCAU Studio Building. The program went off the air the year before. A large portion of the exterior set remained until CBS purchased the station and eliminated "the Bill Bennett Farm Show." Bill used part of the old Action in the Afternoon set for his show. Eventually Bennett was cancelled and the set destroyed.
