Agency History
The 5th Survey District originally covered the area of the 6th, 11th, 12th, 16th and 17th Wards. In 1890, it was moved northward to include parts of the 22nd (later 42nd) and 33rd Wards east of Broad Street, north of Allegheny Avenue and west of the Frankford Creek. This area was later to be politically divided into part of the 33rd and 43rd and all of the 42nd, 49th and 50th Wards.
