    Carl Manley is a history buff.  So when the retired sheet metal worker found himself with plenty of time on his hands, he started posting historic photos of Philadelphia on Facebook.

    Twenty-five thousand photos and nearly 50 thousand fans later, Manley is finding himself something of a local celebrity via his “Old Images of Philadelphia” page.
