Elm Street


ELM STREET is another of Camden's "tree" streets, running west from the foot of the Delaware River to 11th Street. It was not laid out until after 1850, as it does not appear in the City Directory published for that year. It does appear in the 1863-1864 Camden City Directory. 

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

They all lived in Camden, NJ from the 1890s into the 1910s on Front Street, where my Grandmother Frances Breininger Wilson was born in that home. By 1914 they moved to 120 Elm Street.

My parents moved to Camden sometime in 1940 which was the year of my birth.  We lived at 829 North Sixth Street until the spring of 1948.  For a few months we lived at 833 North Sixth Street as there was some delay in the closing on the house my parents bought at 609 Elm Street.

 I attended kindergarten at the Cassady School at 3rd and State Streets.  Then I went to first and second grade at the Read School at 5th and York.  From third through sixth grade I attended Northeast School at 7th and Vine.  My younger brother attended Sewell School on the other corner of 7th and Vine.  For junior high I went to Veterans Memorial Jr. High in Cramer Hill.  After that I attended school in Philadelphia.  We moved to Philadelphia in the summer after my junior year in high school.

 We were active members of State Street Methodist Church at Sixth and State Streets.  It was a beautiful and vibrant church in those days.

 My childhood in North Camden was happy and normal.  It was a cohesive community and a place where you didn't worry about your kids when they went outside to play.  I would love to see North Camden return to some of its former status as a good place to live and raise a family.

My name is Raymond H. Becoskie. I was born and raised in Camden, from 1947 to 1963. Northgate 2 took our house. I lived at 510 North 7th Street. My Grand Parents Hugh & Cathrine Kennedy AKA as the "Camden Window Washer Man" lived at 625 Elm Street and my Aunt Catherine Kennedy lived on Pearl Street between 6th & 7th Streets. My first friends lived on Birch Street. One of my fondest memories was of the corner confectionary store on 7th & Birch known then as "Benny's". Never knew his real name. I attended Holy Name, Pyne Point and Woodrow Wilson Schools. I have a picture of me on the same Pony that Albert Bass from 6th Street, that had his picture taken on State Street on your site. Roy & Albert Bass were good friends of mine.

Use of 'Cheaters' Fails to Deceive Judge's Memory

The changeable eyesight of chronic offenders doesn't fool Police Judge Gene R. Mariano one bit.

Two men arrested as drunk and disorderly tried It In police court today but didn't get to first base. Instead, they got jail terms.

Several weeks ago Wesley Pigwood, 44, of 2390 Farragut Avenue, received a suspended sentence. Yesterday he appeared before Judge Mariano wearing smoked glasses.

"You can't fool me," Mariano said. "You were arrested three weeks ago and I gave you a chance. Now youll go to jail for 30 days."

Henry Brownson, 58, of 926 Elm Street, tried the same trick, with reverse English. Wearing glasses, he received a suspended sentence several weeks ago. Yesterday without glasses, he was haled before the court again. Mariano recognized him and sentenced him to 15 days.

BANDIT'S BULLET HALTS PURSUERS
Two Youths Escape After
Robbing North Camden Grocery Store

A bullet whizzing past them caused several men to cease pursuit of two bandits on Elm street near Ninth Saturday night after the pair had obtained $18.75 in the holdup of a grocery store proprietor at 841 Elm Street.

The victim was Herman Kalmowitz, whose store was broken into and robbed twice recently. Kacmowitz said the two youths, about 17 years old, entered and asked for candy. When he started to get it, one pointed a pistol at him and demanded that he "stick 'em up."

While the one "covered" him the with the weapon, the other robbed the cash register. As they fled, Kalmowitz ran after them screaming. His alarm attracted the attention of several men passing, who started in pursuit of the bandits east on Elm  street. One fired a pistol, however, and the men abandoned the chase.

The youths were about five feet five, Kalmowitz said, and wore gray caps. One had a dark gray overcoat and the other's was a light gray.

Detectives Joseph Carpani and Sylvester McGrath are investigating.

A purse-snatching and theft of a leather bag from an automobile also were reported to police. The theft of brass and copper fittings also is under investigation with a 17-year-old youth under arrest.

Anna Whiteman, 16, 1606 Pershing Street, reported that two boys, about 15, snatched her purse containing $1 while she walked with a companion, Ada Hans, 16, of 1342 Lansdowne Avenue, on Lansdowne near Norris Street. She pursued the boys but was compelled to give up the chase when she slipped and fell.

A black leather bag was stolen from the car of Frank Grotaski, of Cape May, parked Saturday night at Fifth and Arch Streets. The door of the car was forced open. The empty bag, minus clothes and letters it had contained, was found later by two boys in an alley on South Sixth street, near Stevens.

At liberty, under $500 bail, George Dotterer, 17, of 928 North Twenty-fourth street, is charged with larceny, although the brass and copper fittings he is suspected of stealing have not been identified as to ownership.

Dotterer was arrested by Patrolman Herbert Bott when the youth asked for aid in recovery of the fittings from a junk man to whom he had "sold" the goods. He said the man, George Elliott, of Twenty-fourth and Pierce avenue, kept the fittings and refused to pay him.

Bott presumed after examining the fittings "they could not have been picked up as junk" and arrested the youth in the belief they had been stolen from the Pavonia railroad shops. Detective Sergeant Joseph Tully declared the fittings had not been stolen from the shops. The boy is to face Police Judge Garfield Pancoast this morning.
