Market Street


MARKET STREET must have been named because it had a market, or was meant to anyway. The Market was actually at Third and Federal. Go figure! 

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

Camden NJ - 1928

Everyone laments things in Camden that have been knocked down. Here is a photo that shows a time where a lot of places we take for granted hadn't yet been built. Click in the image to supersize this wonderful photo of Camden.... before City Hall, the Camden Trust, the Post Office & Federal Building, the Savar Theater, and Admiral Wilson Boulevard had been built!

Market Street, for those not in the know, runs in front of # 4, the then only two-years old Stanley Theater,

Horse cars furnished public transportation in Camden until 1896 when trolleys took aver. Seating about 25 persons, the cars were operated by Camden Horse Railroad Co., whose franchise was taken over by Public Service. In addition to destination signs, an advertisement was carried along the top. From the 1880s through at least 1906, Alonzo C. Lamar's paint supply business was on Market Street just east of Delaware Avenue, where RCA Victor buildings now stand. He also operated the Standard Window Glass Co. out of the same address. This photograph, from about 1881, was submitted to the Courier-Post in the 1950s by Mrs. S. E. Southard, of Wenonah.

A. McCULLY & SONS, HARNESS MAKERS
22 MARKET STREET

A way back in 1860 Mr. A. McCully established the business which bears his name. The founder is now deceased, the firm consisting of his son, W. A. McCully and Eli T. Garrison, who succeeded to the proprietorship on his death, last September.

The large three-story structure, 22 Market street,
with a frontage of 25 and a depth of 110 feet, is occupied
entire, and an extensive business is done, fifteen
employees being kept constantly at work in its spacious,
work-rooms on the second and third floors. The sales- rooms and offices occupy the entire first floor, and are handsomely fitted up with samples of the stock manufactured and carried, embracing everything in horse furnishings ,of all possible grades and prices. Complete sets of harness or portions of a horse's equipment, such as collars, saddles, blankets, whips, sheets, robes, fly-nets, lap-rugs, etc., are here displayed in infinite variety. Both of the young and energetic proprietors are natives of Camden, and highly respected in both social and business circles.

F. ZENNECK, CONFECTIONERY,
314 MARKET STREET

One of the best known Candy stores, both wholesale and retail, in this section, is that of Mr. F. Zanneck. This genial and courteous gentleman opened the business here in 1887, and has since become most favorably thought of.

The store proper is about 20 x 30 feet in dimensions, with a large work room in the rear. All the candy is manufactured on the premises, and is always sure to be pure, as it is all under the strict supervision of the proprietor himself.

All kinds of candy is kept- Mixtures, Taffies and Stick Candy. When running normally, two skilled workmen are constantly employed. 

Mr. Zenneck is a native of Germany. He was a resident of Philadelphia for some time before coming here to reside

MRS. WILLIAM L. DUVAL,
CIGAR AND NEWSDEALER, 
321 MARKET STREET.

THIS business was established fifteen years ago by Mr. Duval, on whose decease in 1887, the present proprietress came into its possession.

A very large stock of Cigars, Tobacco and Smokers' Supplies are constantly kept on hand, in addition to which a line of Periodicals, Stationer}', etc., is also carried.

The proprietress, who is a native of Ireland, has been in this country for 25 years. She is an energetic, enterprising business lady, who richly merits the success she has attained in business.

3 BOYS ARRESTED, ONE AS BURGLAR
Others Captured on Roof of Vacant House; Oldest 13

Three small boys were arrested last night as lawbreakers.

John Greely, 13, of 419 Cedar Street, charged with malicious mischief and breaking and entering, was arrested by Detective John Kaighn on complaint of Carl H. Brummer, of 629 Clinton Street, manager of an American Store at Fourth and Elm Streets, who said he found the boy hiding in the cellar of the store.

The other boys, Victor Linkletter, 13, and William Hoy, 12, both of 506 Penn Street, are charged with trespassing. They were arrested by Detective Sergeant Gustave Koerner and Detectives Kaighn and Frank Crawford, who from windows of the detective bureau in new city hall, said they saw the boys on the roof of a vacant three-story building at 427 Market Street.

Climbing up the rear of the building they said they cornered the boys hiding behind a chimney, apparently planning to enter the building.

All three will be arraigned in police court today.

Franklin Pierce Alloway and his wife, the former Sarah Lavinia Griffee resided at 645 Willard Street when their first child, my mother, was born on November 24, 1919. Her name was Sarah Lavinia Alloway. They resided at 815 Market Street when their second child, Eleanor Jennie Alloway, was born on December 10, 1921. They  lived at 718 Federal Street when their third child, Florence Mae was born on February 23, 1923. They next resided at 513 South 6th Street when their fourth child, Franklin Charles "Bud" Alloway was born on November 7, 1924. They lived at 608 Carmen Street when their fifth child, William Robert Alloway was born, December 31, 1926. The family had moved to 436 Benson Street, when their sixth child, Anna Louse Alloway came on August 5, 1928. When the seventh and last child, Mary Elizabeth was born on August 30, 1930, the family was living at 422 Main Street. The reason given for the continual moving was because of the increase in the family size requiring larger accommodations.

WILLIAM M. QUIMBY, HOME LAUNDRY
828 MARKET STREET

This excellent Laundry, which was established here only three months ago, has already won for itself a reputation for excellence that is highly flattering. The proprietor is both energetic and enterprising, and is a native of Camden. He successfully conducted a laundry in Bordentown prior to his opening here. A specialty is made of Lace Curtains and other fine work, everything being done by hand. Six competent and efficient employees are always at work and a team used for delivery purposes.
