Here's a rare picture taken in 1952 at the WFIL-TV Studios which were located at 46th & Market Streets in West Philadelphia during this era.

On the left is band leader turned broadcaster Paul Whiteman and on the right is baseball legend and manager of the Philadelphia A's Baseball Team, Connie Mack. Whiteman's ABC-TV broadcasts originated live from Philadelphia and the Channel 6 facilities.
