Lawrence Street


LAWRENCE STREET is an east-west street that lays between Cooper Street and Penn Street. It originally ran from North 3rd Street through to North 11th Street, only interrupted by railroad tracks in the 900 block. At some point between 1906 and 1912 another block was added to Lawrence Street, when Maple Street, which ran at an angle from Lawrence at North 11th Street to 12th Street, was renamed. Expansion of the Ben Franklin Bridge plaza and the construction of Interstate 676 eliminated the 600, 700, 800, 900, 1000 and mush of the 1100 blocks. Two buildings belonging to Mt. Calvary Baptist Church are located on the 1100 Block of Lawrence Street. 

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

HUSBAND SENT TO JAIL IN NON-SUPPORT CASE

A husband of less than a year yesterday was sent to county jail in default of a $350 bond which was asked in police court to insure the payment of a $6 weekly support order for his wife and child. 

Ernest Reed, 19, of 317 North Third Street, was arrested on complaint of his wife, Louise, 18, of 906 Lawrence Street. Mrs. Reed testified she was married in August, 1932, and that her husband lived with her two weeks. Her baby was born two months ago, she said, and her husband has given her only $4.25 since Christmas. 

Reed said he has been out of work and unable to support his family.

Delker was treated by a physician for lacerations of the left foot.

At Cooper Hospital three persons received treatment. They are Jonas Cooper, 24, of 1163 Lawrence Street; bit on left arm; Lawrence Repetto, 2, of 117 Main Street, bit on leg, and a physician John Garrity, 17, of 205 Byron Street, bit on leg.
