Sheridan
Street


SHERIDAN STREET is named for American Civil War General Philip Sheridan. 

Sheridan Street originally ran from Warsaw Street east across Mount Ephraim Avenue on a straight line roughly north-east towards Haddon Avenue, stopping at Davis Street, between Jackson and Van Hook Streets. The street was later extended eastward to South 10th Street

For many years the old Camden Municipal Hospital stood at Sheridan and Davis Streets. Sheridan Street, however, is for the most part residential, with a few corner business properties. In recent times perhaps the one that brought the most attention in recent years was the bar that was located on the southeast corner of Sheridan and Pershing Streets, known in in the 1990s as the All Nations Lounge which came to the attention of law enforcement authorities during the pursuit of the Washington D.C. area sniper murderers, John Muhammed and Lee Malvo.  

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

My fiance has family that resided and had businesses in Camden and he spent a lot of time in Camden. His Uncle, Anthony, known as Uncle Ott, traded as Anthony Zadlo Plumbing & Heating and my fiance apprenticed with him for a number of years working all over Camden.

Uncle Ott was born and raised on Mechanic Street a couple of doors from Joseph Sbar Heating Supply which is also long gone. Uncle Ott's older brothers had a broom factory in Camden that was put out of business during WWII. We don't know anything about it. 

Uncle Ott and his wife resided at the corner of 10th and Atlantic Avenue The property was bought by West Jersey Hospital when they expanded. They then to moved to 1261 Sheridan Street and that property was previously owned by Andrew Jackson. Uncle Ott and Aunt Jenny remained at 1261 Sheridan until late 70s or early 80s. He also operated Anthony Zadlo Plumbing & Heating from there as well. 

Uncle Ott's favorite neighborhood bar was Lambert's located at 9th Street and Atlantic. He was known by everyone in the Polish section of Camden.

YOUTHS PEDDLING RADIO
ARRESTED ON SUSPICION

Two youths were arrested late last night on suspicion of stealing a radio when one of them was interrupted by detectives while attempting to sell it.

Detectives Benjamin Simon, Clifford Del Rossi and Robert Ashenfelter became suspicious of a car parked at Norris and Sheridan Streets. The occupant, Stephen Stanziak, 19, of 1279 Sheridan Street, said he was waiting for a companion who was in the store of Michael Gucik, northeast corner of Norris and Sheridan Streets. The detectives entered the store and found Joseph Fiume, 16, of 1349 Van Hook Street, attempting to sell a radio to Gucik. The youths said it had been given to them by a man they did not know.

FLORIST SHOP RAID TRAPS NUMBERS MEN
Police Believe Hunt for Racket Headquarters Ended; 4 Are Arrested

A three-month search for "number's" head- quarters in Camden was believed ended today when detectives raided a florist shop at 1409 Mt. Ephraim avenue, seized seven adding machines, thousands of dollars worth of sales slips and arrested four men. 

Joseph Klosterman, 34, of 1413 Mt. Ephraim Avenue, whom the police believe operated the "bank," was included in a quartet arrested by a squad under command of Sergeant of Detectives Louis Shaw

Responding to an anonymous tip that the numbers men were gathered in a rear room of the store, Shaw, together with Detectives Clarence ArthurGeorge Zeitz and John Kaighn, surrounded the place.

The others arrested in the raid gave their names as Charles Selanski, 23, of 1286 Sheridan Street; Leon Babrowski, 22, of 1209 Lansdowne Avenue, and Frank Gromacki, 27, of 1411 Mt. Ephraim Avenue. Several "pickup men," who have been arrested while carrying money and numbers slips, according to Shaw, were linked with the ring. The principals, however, had managed to escape detection. 

The flower shop, Shaw said, is operated by Joseph Haleski, and was used as a "blind" for the lottery racket.

Klosterman was released last night in $1000 bail for a hearing today on a charge of operating a numbers lottery. The others were all released in $100 cash security as material witnesses..

2 MEN SENT TO JAIL IN THEFT OF AUTO

Found guilty of stealing an automobile which has not yet been recovered, two Whitman Park men were given six months in the county jail by Police Judge Pancoast yesterday. 

Identified by the owner of the machine who said he saw them drive away in it, Herbert Cox, 25, of 1247 Van Hook Street, and Charles Casale, 26, of 1351 Van Hook Street, were sentenced in spite of their denial of the theft. John Harwan, of 1311 Sheridan Street, the owner of the car, testified that Cox and Casale took his machine from Mt. Ephraim Avenue and Van Hook Street where it was parked in front of his soft drink establishment. He tried to jump on the running board, he said, but could not reach it. He called the police and ordered the men arrested, he said. 

Cox and Casale said they did not know anything about Harwan's automobile. They were in a speakeasy drinking all night, they said, and left the place intoxicated. In answer to Judge Pancoast's questions the men said they did not remember where the speakeasy was.
