Penn Street


PENN STREET did not appear in the 1863 Camden City Directory, but is listed in the 1867 edition. The street runs east from the Delaware River to North 12th Street. Much of Penn Street between North 3rd and North 5th Street was razed to make way for the expansion of Rutgers University, and several blocks of Penn Street disappeared when Route 676 was built through the heart of Camden to connect to the Ben Franklin Bridge toll plaza.

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

The Cooper Mansion was purchased by the City of Camden in December of 1898, and became the city's first public par. The three-story building on the property became the first home of Camden Free Public Library. In the 1910s the old mansion was razed to make room for the Johnson Library and Johnson Park

3 WITH GUNS GET $80 IN BROADWAY HOLDUP

Three men, two of them wearing handkerchiefs over their faces, held up a gasoline station attendant at Broadway and Lansdowne Avenue yesterday and escaped with $80, according to detectives.

The police said the men entered the place at 2 a.m. and pointed guns at Robert Horner, 17, of 107 Penn street. The man who did not have his face covered tried to hide his identity by holding his handkerchief to his face.

Horner told Detective Sergeant Gus Koerner two of the men were in their shirt sleeves while the third wore a tan coat. William Risley, of 1380 Lansdowne Avenue, watchman at a nearby bag factory, said he saw the men "acting suspiciously" in the neighborhood and telephoned police headquarters.

My name is Jose Sanchez, I currently reside in Puerto Rico. We, the Sanchez clan grew up in Camden, specifically at 115 Penn Street, from the 50s to about 1968. My family returned to Puerto Rico while I was in the Army from 1968 to 1970. When I returned from Vietnam they were all living in Puerto Rico so I came here also. 

We are all proud of our years in Camden and it always comes up in our conversation. We are products not only of our ethnic or cultural upbringing or background but also of our neighborhood ties and relationships with that neighborhood, as they say "IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO RAISE A CHILD'.

Thus we the Sanchez family are glad and proud to have lived in Camden. There is where our childhood memories lie and our sense of being and belonging were engraved in us.

In reference to Miss Casselman's letter I would like to say that I know of them. We lived on 115 Penn Street, and were next door neighbors to the Gramleys, my father and Mr. Gramley would often talk baseball. The sister who had a hearing impediment was named Mary she worked I believe as a as a secretary.  She mentions the Norris sisters, one of them Grace was my 4th grade teacher [at Cooper-Grant School - PMC]. I am sending a class picture of that class and also of  my 3rd grade class. I could identify some of the students in the back of the picture, I feel bad that I could not ID some of them but I was surprised that I could remember so many "off the bat". 

I worked for awhile after school and Saturdays at the grocery store she mentions on Friends Avenue. I believe the owners at the time were named Herman and Frieda. She mentions Dr. Ruttenburg, I was born with a perforated eardrum and he was my Doctor, he operated on me (Skin Graft). She also mentions The West Jersey Title and Guarantee Co., when I graduated from Woodrow Wilson I worked there, (my first REAL JOB) as a office boy/messenger.

YOUNG WOMAN CLEARS HER ESCORT IN ATTACK

A young Camden woman insisted so strongly that her escort was not the man who struck her yesterday that detectives, after questioning him several hours, released him from custody and agreed to forget the whole thing.

The escort, Frank A. Lyons, 32, of 519 Bergen Street, Gloucester, was seized after Miss Betty Schaeffer, of 321 Penn Street, was found semiconscious at Broadway and Mickle Street.

She was taken to Cooper Hospital but returned to police headquarters several hours later to exonerate Lyons. She told detectives an unidentified man struck her shortly after she and Lyons left a bus at Broadway and Mickle Street.

Miss Schaeffer said she and Lyons "had an argument" on the bus and that when they got off, Lyons was walking ahead of her when some one struck her from behind.

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.

'Dad, Won't You Come Back?' 

Mrs. Julia Joyce, of 516 Penn street, appealed to the Courier-Post and the police yesterday to aid in a search for her husband, Jesse, who disappeared from his home, last Saturday. Barbara, 5, and Stanley, 18 months, pictured above, join in the appeal for their missing parent's return.

Family Is Destitute As Father Is Hunted 
North Camden Mother of Two Small Children Asks Aid
in Search for Husband Who Disappeared Last Saturday 

Within the modest walls of a small North Camden home a young mother and her two children stoically await the return of a missing husband and father. 

Left without light or food, the once happy family sits in quiet fortitude hoping against hope that each hour will return to them the one to whom they have always been able to turn. 

Faithfully and almost futilely trying to provide, food for her young ones, Mrs. Julia Joyce, 30, of 516 Penn Street, Thursday asked the police to find her missing husband, Jesse, 32.

He went out Saturday morning to try to get a job," she sobbed to Detective William Boettcher, of the missing persons bureau, "and I have not seen him since. The only food I have is that which is given to us by the relief and now that my husband is gone. I am afraid they will take our order away from us. 


     "Our gas and electric was shut off two weeks ago and I have been cooking on a coal range and using candles for light. I don't know who to turn to and I am so worried I don't know what I will do." 

The two children are Barbara, five, and Stanley, 18 months. The daughter is the child of another marriage. Mrs. Joyce married for the second time after a divorce from her first husband two years ago. 

"I don't see how Jesse could have done this to me and the children. It was hard getting along with him here but without him it looks still blacker. , 

"I have had to go to Cooper hospital for treatment since my husband left and the children are not in the best of health either. Ever since he lost his job in a restaurant six months ago, he has been discouraged and worried over how we would get along. 

"Through the kindness of the relief we have managed pretty well but right now it looks as though I am staring a blank wall in the face," 

Mrs. Joyce described her husband as being about five feet, 11 inches tall, of slender build, weighing about 138 pounds. He has dark brown hair and blue eyes. He was wearing a gray soft hat, a gray summer suit and black oxfords. He has a scar on the right hand and one on the right ear. 

Wife on Bus Spots Missing Husband Sitting in Park

The sharp eyes of Mrs. Julia Joyce, 30, of 516 Penn Street, resulted in the return of her missing husband yesterday.

Weeks after she reported his disappearance to the police, Mrs. Joyce saw her husband, Jesse, sitting in Franklin Square while she was riding on a bus.

  She alighted from the bus and persuaded her husband to return to their home where she and her two children have been trying to get along on a food order supplied by the city emergency.

  Joyce, after agreeing to return home, said that he left because he was worried over the financial affairs of his household.

COURT SENDS GIRL, 15, TO HOME OF HER SISTER

One of the five children of Joseph White, a former Camden hotel proprietor, who have been county charges, found a home yesterday.

White, who lives at 517 Penn Street, was rebuked in police court by Judge Pancoast last week, for buying expensive clothing and wearing diamonds while his ten children were in need. Welfare workers said he failed to contribute to the support of the five children in homes here and in Trenton.

The recent hearing was a result of White bringing his 15-year-old daughter, Dorothy, into court as an incorrigible. The charge was disproved today in the opinion of Judge Samuel Shay, sitting in juvenile court. He granted the request of Dorothy's married sister, Mrs. Catherine Graham, of Magnolia, to have the girl live with her

TWO WOMEN EXILED BY LIBERMAN ORDER

Two young women were ordered to leave Camden by Police Judge Lewis Liberman yesterday when they were charged with disorderly conduct on a complaint made by Acting Detective John V. Wilkie.

Miss Dorothy Mendenhall, 24, and Miss Peggy Schultz, 24, both of whom gave addresses of 523 Penn Street, were arrested by Wilkie Saturday night after he received a complaint from a boarding house proprietor at the Penn street address.

Three men also were arrested as a result of the investigation made by Wilkie. Two were released with a warning while the third was fined $10.

Wilkie testified he went to the address in response to a radio call and was told by Mrs. Harry Barton, the proprietor, that Miss Mendenhall and Leonard Angelastro, 28, of 258 Pine Street, created a disturbance when she ordered them to move. The Schultz woman went to live in the room with Miss Mendenhall Wednesday, Wilkie said.

Wilkie testified both girls had been arrested before. Judge Liberman said if they were found in Camden again they would be given six months. Both girls denied that Angelastro lived at the room they occupied. Angelastro was fined $10.

***

Manpower of two Engine Companies get big line into service and give fire "a dash" from the street before attempting interior attack at Fourth Alarm, North 6th & Penn Streets, March 30, 1970.


Fourth Alarm for fire and collapse at electronics supply house, North 6th & Penn Streets, center city in March 1970. Scene depicts exterior operations at height of fire as heavy smoke vents from building. Roof and top floor of building collapsed trapping members of Engine Company 1

Members access basement and prepare to advance handline through sidewalk cellar doors during overhaul at Fourth Alarm, North 6th & Penn Streets- 3-30-1970


All hands anxiously await their turn on the inside during rescue operations following collapse of fire building on Easter Monday, March 1970. At time of collapse Engine 1 was operating handline on second floor while overhauling. Without warning roof and second floor pancaked into first floor and basement. Captain Phillip Maycott and Fire Fighters Alston, DeHart, Maroldo and Winters were buried amid tons of rubble. All members managed to extricate themselves except for "the Officer and the Probie".


Removed from ruins of collapse is Probationary Fire Fighter John Maroldo. Maroldo narrowly escaping certain death after being entombed for over an hour is seen shouting at members to "find my captain". 

Captain Vincent Orme, Engine Company 7 reassures Maroldo that continuing rescue operations are underway.


Captain Maycott as last member removed from collapse is carried to waiting ambulance. Units at scene breached walls and performed tunneling and shoring operations to reach trapped members. Both Maycott and Maroldo miraculously escaped with just bruises and sprains. Remaining members of Engine 1 were treated for cuts and scrapes following near catastrophe on March 30, 1970.

FR. TURNER TO SPEAK AT RETREAT MEETING
Knights of Columbus Plan to Enroll 100 Here
in Laymen's Movement

The second meeting of the Camden Knights of Columbus Retreat Club will be held at their home, 603 Penn Street, tonight at 8-30 p. m.

The Knights are sponsoring the Laymen's Retreat movement in Camden and have set their goal at 100 men. The retreat will be held at San Alfonso Retreat House at West End, the weekend of July 23.

Tonight's meeting will be known as "East-Side night," and a delegation of men from St. Joseph's parish will welcome Father Joseph Turner, C. S. S. R., who will be the principal speaker.

Father Turner is one of the pioneers of the Laymen's Retreat movement in this country, being responsible for the establishment of the Retreat House at West End.

San Alfonso Retreat House was opened in 1927, with less than 50 laymen retreatants and has steadily grown each year. During the year of 1937 a total of 1800 retreatants was reached. Much of this progress is due to the efforts of Father Turner, who was the Retreat master for a period of more than two years.

Past Grand Knight Reynolds is the Retreat captain.

THREE MEN NABBED IN NORTH CAMDEN ROW
One Gets 60 Days for Attack on Plain Clothes Cop

Three young men were found guilty of disorderly conduct in police court this morning when they were charged with creating a disturbance In front of a restaurant near Sixth and Market streets.

Fiore Rossi, 23 years old, 329 Mickle Street, brother of ‘Pee Wee’ Rossi, local pugilist, was sentenced to 60 days in the county jail. Thomas O’Neill, 22 years old, 204 Berkley Street, was fined $20 and sentence was suspended on John Develin, 21 years old, 1002 Penn Street.

Rossi was charged with severely beating August Fortune, a policeman assigned to special duty at the restaurant.

Patrolman Fred Mueller testified that at 3:30 o’clock Sunday morning he had told the men to “move on” from Fifth and Market Streets when he found them creating a disturbance. The men walked away and in front of the restaurant again became boisterous. Moeller and policeman Marshall Thompson then arrested O’Neill who had become “sassy”. The other two objected to the arrest, and when Fortune came from inside the building to assist his brother officers, he was struck in the face and knocked down by Rossi. The three succeeded in taking the men to headquarters.

Rossi this morning admitted hitting Fortune but said he did not know he was an officer and “thought he was a wise guy trying to go big with a woman’.

A mother's persistent entreaties that the Camden police further investigate the death of her son resulted yesterday in the arrest of two women and a man on suspicion of manslaughter.

The arrests were made by City Detective George Zeitz in connection with the drowning Saturday night a week ago of Briggs Miller, 26, colored, of 2820 Mitchell street. The body was found last Monday in Cooper creek at the head of Twelfth street.

Since the death of her son, Mrs. Sallie Robinson, twice married, communicated with the police several times, telling of her suspicion that her boy was pushed from a boat.

Under arrest are Regina Ganges, 32, of 1011 Penn street; Shetta Johnson, 37, of 311 Chester street, and Solomon Waples, 33, of 2820 Mitchell street, all colored.

NAP IN PARKED AUTO BRINGS 30 DAYS IN JAIL

Because Samuel Boykin, 29, of 1022 Penn Street, insisted on sleeping in an automobile parked in a restricted area, he will pass the next 30 nights in jail. Police Judge Pancoast, in sending Boykin to jail on a charge of being drunk and disorderly, also indicated he would spend the same number of days in jail.

Motorcycle Policeman Walter Vecander testified he went to Broadway and Market street on complaint of a motorist who said a man was sleeping in his car. Boykin was taken to police headquarters but released when the motorist refused to sign a complaint. 

Fifteen minutes later Boykin was sound asleep in the same automobile, Vecander said. Boykin admitted he had been drinking but denied he had been driving while intoxicated or that he was disorderly. A charge of illegal parking was dismissed..

POLICE ASKED TO HUNT 2 MOORESTOWN GIRLS

Camden police last night were asked to assist in the search for Julia Paoli, 20, and her sister, Gilda, 18, who have been missing from their home, 214 Mill Street, Moorestown, for the past two years.

The request came from relatives of the girls on behalf of their mother, Mrs. Marguerite Juliana, who is seriously ill at the Mill street address.

The sisters left home after an argu­ment with their stepfather, Joseph Juliana. A sister, Mrs. Valerie Brooks lives at 1170 Penn Street.

My mother, 3 siblings and I moved to Camden in February 1954: 312 Summit Street in North Camden, a small street sandwiched between 10th and 11th Penn Street. Went to the old Clara S. Burrough Jr. High on Haddon Avenue. In 1955, we moved to 1191-1/2 Penn Street, again in North Camden, directly behind Admiral Wilson Blvd.

Summit Street reminded me of photos I had seen of Hiroshima after the bomb. There were no more than 3 or 4 houses. Ours was the only one with an indoor facility. The rest of the street was rubble (bricks) from homes that had been demolished, a few cars parked but the scene was bleak. We were delighted to move.
