Thirtieth
Street


THIRTIETH STREET runs from the Delaware River south, across River Road to the Pavonia railroad switching yard, then to Westfield Avenue and on to Federal Street, then to the intersection of Line Street and Beacon Avenue, just above Waldorf Street. As in all numbered streets in Camden, it is North 30th Street above Federal, and South 30th below.

Do you have a Thirtieth Street memory or picture? Let me know by e-mail so it can be included here.

I grew up in Cramer Hill at 928 North 30th Street, attended H. C. Sharp grammar school, Veterans Memorial junior high, and graduated from Woodrow Wilson in 1965.  One of my new customers is located at 18th and River Road in Camden, so I recently had an opportunity to drive around some parts of Camden and Pennsauken, and I noticed that things seem to be improving somewhat, and a bit better than they were 10 years ago!

Wayne Willard Martin

My name is Wayne Martin. My fraternal grandparents Victor Arthur and Blanche Martin owned that property from about 1910 until my grand father's demise in 1943. My mother, Eleanor Alloway-Martin married their son, Wayne Willard Martin, my father in 1941. Soon afterwards we moved to Westfield Acres, and later to Pierce Avenue in Cramer Hill. My grandfather worked for the troller car company that ran from Cramer Hill to the Market Street Ferry termina before going to work at the shipyards, as did my father as electricians until he went into the Army during WWII.

My mother and her husband, my father, also lived at the house on 134 N. 30th Street before I was born. I have included with this e-mail a photograph of the house with my grandparents out front, and my father standing at the top of the stairs on the porch.

My Father, Harry Molotsky, had a grocery store called  Harry's Red Front Market at 1048 Cooper Street. I am not sure what year he purchased the property, but it was in the 1940s.  I was born in 1945 and my brother, Allan, in 1948.  We lived behind the store until 1951 when we moved to East Camden at 420 South 30th Street.

My father kept the business until the early 1960's when he had cataract surgery and the state took the property. Dad then worked for Two Guys in the deli department for  many years before retiring. It was nice that he had normal working hours.  My parents started taking vacations which they had not been able to do before.

My father had a young man delivering groceries by bicycle. He let people buy groceries on credit.  We never had to go grocery shopping as he always took home necessities and treats from the store.  Since we kept kosher, we had to get our meat from the kosher butcher even though my father sold meat. He always had a butcher whose name was Warren Peaches.  His son taught me how to drive.

Father's parents had a grocery store at 6th and Elm Street. My aunt and uncle, Sam and Esther, had a grocery at 9th and Pearl if I remember correctly.  A cousin of my dad, Abe Molotsky had a dry goods store, but I can't remember the location (442-444 North 8th Street- PMC).
