Langham
Avenue


LANGHAM AVENUE is in Parkside, running south from Walnut Street to Baird Avenue, two blocks east of Haddon Avenue. In the years following World War I, many prominent members of Camden's Jewish community lived on Langham, although the street w never, as popular rumor states, entirely Jewish. This pretty much had ceased to be the case by the end of the 1950s.

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

1000 & 1100 Block of Langham Avenue

Joe Santosuosso [1022 Langham] was one of my playmates. We used to sneak drinks of his Dad's sour red wine. Marvin Ruttenberg's father's ceremonial wine was delicious, and we would sneak down his cellar [1417 Park Boulevard] and take a swig. It tasted better than anything Manischevitz ever made!  Johnny Furer [1124 Langham] was my classmate in Parkside School. He was a nice gentle fellow. I think of them often on Memorial Day.    

I knew a lot of people in the 1000 block of Langham, but not the house numbers. Eddie Saline [1044 Langham], Frankie Conover, Betty Zeidman, and many more. Mr.Holtzman had the grocery store at 1001 when I was small, and my grandmother would give me a note and handful of change to walk down and buy something she needed. 

My Rabbi friend, who is a Chaplain at our VA hospital down here, had a copy of a recent JWV news that I read. He was touched when I showed him the Furer-Barag post news and told him about John. Small world.

11 NABBED BY POLICE IN GAMBLING RAIDS
7 Arrested in Bingo Numbers Racket; 4 Seized in Betting Place

Ten men and a woman were arrested in gambling raids over the weekend by Camden city and county authorities.

Seven were arrested for operating a "bingo numbers" racket. A warrant also was issued for Frank Palese, 400 Spruce street, a member of a widely known South Camden family, as the "big shot" of the racket, according to Chief Lawrence T. Doran, of county detectives. Doran said last night Palese is still a fugitive.

In another raid by Camden police, three men and a woman were arrested in an alleged horse racing betting establishment at 1149 Lansdowne avenue. The place was on the second floor over a grocery store, according to Sergeant Gus Koerner, City Detective Thomas Murphy, Jr., and Patrolman James McLaughlin, who made the raid. Koerner and Murphy also figured in the second raid.

Several racing forms and four telephones with two direct wires to tracks now in operation were seized, according to Koerner and Murphy, The police first arrested Roland Flynn, 36, of 589 Carman street; Neil Zeidman, 43, of 1064 Langham avenue, and James O'Donal, 27, of 1119 Empire avenue, and held them in $1000 bail for violating the State crimes act.
