Exuberant fans pack Broad Street south of City Hall after the parade honoring the victorious 2008 Philadelphia Phillies baseball team had passed on its way to Citizens Bank Park in South Philadelphia, where the the celebration of the team’s World Series victory continued. The salute on October 31, 2008, was a moment of great optimism for the city and offered a welcome counterpoint to the Great Recession that was underway. In the weeks following the parade, some families whose deceased relatives had been big fans visited their graves and erected Phillies World Series pennants. (Photograph by Donald D.
