Prime Philadelphia real estate for sale, 280 years ago

Here's a clipping advertising the sale of some "good brick houses" from the March 14, 1738, edition of The Pennsylvania Gazette, which was co-owned and printed by Benjamin Franklin at that time.

The "Quaker's Burying Ground" that's mentioned is likely the one that's now called the Arch Street Friends Meeting House. Mulberry Street wasn't officially renamed as Arch Street until 1854, but you can see from this news item that things were already trending in that direction.
