week of March 1, 1960
Elizabeth Taylor injures her ankle while she and husband Eddie Fisher walked
out of a Philadelphia restaurant. The actress slipped on ice. Both were in town for
a visit to Fisher’s mother
This happened at "Smylie's," a restaurant that stood next to the current Smylie Times Building. In 1968, Joseph J. Smylie
tore down the restaurant and bought adjacent land to develop a five-story, 50,000-square-foot office building, the Smylie Times Building.
White Diamonds Bonus!
A short jaunt from the Smylie Times Building, but only if you're time traveling or taking the Concord:
