City - Philadelphia, PA - 2nd Street at Dock 1866 - Side by Side

Colorized photo from 1866 Original title: Northwest corner of 2nd and Dock Streets Photographer: Unknown Location: Northwest corner of 2nd and Dock Streets, Philadelphia, PA
Beyond locating this exact street corner, there wasn't a whole lot of info about this picture or why it was taken. I assume it was an advertising shot for that Carver place, and yet those two out front seem totally random. One looks like a soldier, which is why I colored him that way.
It's unclear if that Anthracite building on the right kept going or if the front was in the spot of the edge of the frame, so I extended that and gave the handcart its other wheel.
Not a single of these buildings exists today, only the corner. Behind these buildings I think there is one, but you can't see it.
