Broadway


BROADWAY in Camden..... a legendary street, once the "Mall of South Jersey". Running south west of 6th Streets past Ferry Avenue and then all the way to Gloucester City, and eventually on to Woodbury, Broadway was extended north from its beginning at Market Street through to the Delaware River (Ben Franklin) Bridge toll plaza in the 1920s. 

When Camden began its period of industrial growth and expansion after the Civil War, the intersections of Broadway and Federal Street, Broadway and Kaighn Avenue, and Broadway and Ferry Avenue became anchor locations in the civic and commercial life of Camden and the surrounding areas. Homes and businesses soon filled in the "empty spaces" between these intersections. During the 1890s and the first two decades of the 20th Century, Camden-based contractor John J. Welsh was known in the city as "the man who built Broadway", as his firm was involved with a great many projects along the thoroughfare. Brothers George M. Holl and Lewis F. Holl also completed many projects during these years. James H. Reeve, who had worked for Welsh as a foreman, remodeled many of the homes, including those on the Holl Block, between Stevens and Mickle Streets, for business purposes. Reeve and his sons also built three theatres on Broadway, the Lyric, the Towers, and the Princess. 

In 1938 a proposal was floated to widen Broadway as a state highway project. This went nowhere.

Camden Courier-Post * February 28, 1938

BUSINESS MEN TO HEAR WIDER-BROADWAY PLAN

The plan of S. Herbert Taylor, assistant county engineer, for widening of Broadway as a state highway project will be explained by him at a meeting of property owners and Broadway business men in the Chamber of Commerce Assembly room at 3.30 p .m. Thursday.

Taylor will explain his proposal at the request of a sub-committee of the Retail Merchants Division of the Chamber, headed by J. V. Moran.

"This matter is of immediate interest to every business man on Broadway," Moran said in inviting all Broadway business men to attend, "and I cannot urge too strongly that either you personally or some one authorized to speak for you should attend."

When Camden began its economic decline in the 1950s, Broadway suffered right along with it. Broadway became in many ways the symbol of Camden's economic fall. Although there have been some new buildings erected in recent years, most significantly the Walter Rand Transportation Center between Broadway and Mickle Streets, far too much of Broadway in June of 2004 consists of vacant lots and boarded up buildings.

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

Architect's Conception of Proposed Bus Terminal 

The above drawing shows the proposed bus terminal to be built on the block bordered by Broadway, Sixth Street, Cooper Street and Lawrence Street. Two two-story buildings, 128 feet long and 28 feet deep, to be erected, one facing on Broadway and the other on Sixth street. Between the two buildings there will be a 67-foot street from Cooper to Lawrence Street where buses will take on and leave passengers.

The Commerce Building, at the  corner of Broadway & Federal Streets, sits on the land formerly occupied by the Munger & Long building, the home of the J.C. Penney store in Camden for many years. By the mid 1990s the building had very few tenants. Structurally sound, it is one of the very few pre-1980s building left standing on the ground between Mickle and Federal Street west of 10th Street.

COP ON LEDGE THRILLS HUNDREDS DRAWN BY FALSE BURGLAR ALARM

Several hundred persons, attracted by the loud ringing of a burglar alarm at the King jewelry store, 4 Broadway, watched Patrolman John V. Wilkie last night as he climbed over the roof of the building and across a narrow ledge to an open second story window to investigate the alarm.

Failing to find anyone, Wilkie climbed back, over the ledge to the roof after finding himself locked in the building.

A score of police detectives and motorcycle patrolmen answered the alarm. William Schoeffling, manager of the jewelry concern, was notified of the "false alarm."

I have many memories, as a young boy, from the office windows, watching train traffic crossing Broadway on the old bridge (viaduct) right outside the window!

Hartmann Approves Plans for 2 Modern Stores at 213-15 Broadway

Plans for two modern stores on the site of 213-15 
Broadway, have been approved by Commissioner Frank J. Hartmann.

The stores, modernistic in design, will be built for Abraham Brandt, of 104 King street, Gloucester City. The contractor will be S. Levy, Inc.

Two former stores on the sites have been razed to make room for the more modern buildings, which
will be the first of their design in the city.

The stores will be one story in height with false fronts built to give them greater height. The plans provide for the future erection of upper stories.

Two garages and several homes were entered over the weekend by thieves who escaped with, cash, jewelry and other articles.

Theft of jewelry valued at $100 and a $5 note were reported to police last night by Mrs. Bernard Heidrich, of 418 Broadway. Mrs. Heidrich told City Detective Harry Kyler she and her husband returned home after an absence of nine hours and discovered a door leading to their second-floor apartment had been jimmied. Among the articles reported stolen were a bracelet, a brooch and a ring.

Kyler reported an attempt had been made to gain entrance to the office of Dr. C. C. Eppleman in the same building. A panel was forced in a door, Kyler said.

Walter T. Ridgeway, of 924 Penn Street, reported the theft of a heater and radio speaker from his automobile while it was parked in his garage on Twelfth Street near Lawrence. Ridgeway said the lock on the garage had been forced.

Jacob Fine, of 1700 Master Street, told police three boys walked into his store and escaped with 10 cartons of cigarettes.

Jennie Finkel, of 2615 Westfield Avenue, said $25 had been stolen from a bureau drawer in her apartment. No marks of forced entry could be found.

The lock, key, auto jack and two one-gallon cans of anti-freeze were stolen from a garage used by George Firth, 540 Stevens Street, Firth told police. The articles were valued at $5.

CRASH FOILS THIEVES

Thieves who used a ladder to remove a second-story window from Corbett's Kut Price Drug Store, 725 Broadway, were frightened away early yesterday when the window crashed.

Mrs. Prossie Corbett, proprietor of the store, asleep in her bedroom in another part of the building, told the police she heard no noise.

The ladder, recently used by painters at the store, was discovered by David Hawkes, a private watchman in the neighborhood, at 4 a. m. He called the police and Detectives Leon Branch and George Zeitz responded. According to them, the thieves removed the window by using a brace and bit.

Woman Fires Gun After Mistaking Cop for Prowler

A wakened by a noise at 3 a. m. yesterday, Mrs. Prossie Corbett, proprietor of a drug store at 725 Broadway, looked out of her third-story bedroom window and saw a man get in a car and hurriedly drive away.

Mrs. Corbett, whose store burglars attempted to enter last Friday by climbing a ladder and removing a window on the second floor, fired three shots to attract the police, but the car already had disappeared down Broadway.

A few moments later, in answer to her call, half a dozen motorcycle patrolmen were outside her place. Just then Detective Edward Mills came along in his car.

Told of what had occurred, Mills declared it was he who had gotten into the car Mrs. Corbett described to the police. Mills said he had left the car parked there while he made a routine inspection of the neighborhood.

THIEVES ROB BAKERY AND GROCERY STORE

While bakers were at work in an other part of the building, thieves entered the bakery of William Spengel, 825 Broadway, at 6.30 a. m. yesterday and stole $18 from a cash drawer. The theft was discovered when an employee, about to give change to a customer, found the money gone.

Thieves who entered the grocery store of Herman Kaimowitz, Ninth and Elm Streets, during the night, tore a pay telephone station from the wall and took it with them. A quantity of cigarettes also was stolen.

The windshield from the automobile of Earl Calhoun, Haddon Heights, was stolen while the machine was parked on Broadway near Market Street.

M&A Bar & Grille was in fact in business in 1959. May have even been prior to that they took it over in 1955.  At 833 Broadway. They later took over the other side where there was a bar. There was an apartment on top of the grille part occupied by my cousins. The place was split into two parts. Half was a grille and luncheonette and the other half a bar. I thought the years they owned it were from 1955 to 1968?

M&A stands for my aunt and uncle's names:  Michael & Antoinette Spiduro.  I heard the name Stackhouse when I was little but never knew the relationship or whether they rented or owned the bar part?  Not sure. They had a little enclosed hallway that separated the two places. They were long but small areas so this was possible.

I do know that my uncle in an effort to save the business during the riots took in strays and homeless to watch over the bar at night when it was closed.  Needless to say they drank for their pay. It became a go-go bar in the late 60's. lol. He was a good man and was respected by all. There was a gift/card store nearby and I think they were the only two structures left standing on the block in 1967. He past away in his 70's in 1978. My aunt past away in her 90's in 2005.

DUDLEY SCHOOL ROBBED,
BOYS BLAMED BY POLICE

Patrolmen of the Second and Third districts are attempting to locate boys who are believed to be responsible for two robberies over the weekend.

Breaking into the Dudley School, Twenty-Third and High Streets, thieves ransacked teachers' desks in every room and carried off the contents of a telephone box which they tore from the wall. Detective William Casler, investigating the thefts, was unable to learn whether anything had been stolen from the desks. He said he round a number of small fingerprints on the windows through which the robbers entered.

The second robbery was reported by Jacob Dubin, of 835 Broadway. He said that a show case in front of his store was broken open and men’s shirts and sweaters valued at $50 stolen

My Uncle Mike & Aunt Antoinette Spiduro bought the grill first in the 50's then added the bar in 1959ish. Mrs. Stackhouse was fully aware of the fact her name was still present on the paperwork. That's how things got done back in the day. Don't ask don't tell I guess? My uncle ran both businesses through the riot period into the early 70's when the bar became a Go-Go joint. He was a character. Peg leg pants, dress shirt and fedora with a pinky ring, always cigarette in hand. He had arcade games and jukeboxes that made the place lively. It was home to vagrants and such during those horrible times. He kept Dobermans dogs very vicious and vagrants to watch the place and anyone that needed a place to stay for the night as the top floor was an apartment. It along with the gift shop were the only two buildings standing on that block after the riots. Long after that period of time I believe there was some sort of fire that took out the two shelled buildings. I think those lots are still vacant today. He and Pat Giambrone were soul brothers. They loved playing cards and sending messages to each other with the booze and meat orders. Sad an era gone. I loved those times even though there was danger all around, there was also fun times.

POLICE SEEKING PASSER OF BOGUS MONEY HERE

Camden police yesterday warned merchants to be on the lookout for counterfeit money passers who are working in the city.

WILLIAM J. HAINES, Oysters

This gentleman established himself in business here about six years ago, and in a neatly fitted up Dining Room, 20x50 feet in dimensions, and with a capacity of seating about sixty persons. In the season Mr. Haines makes a specialty of his Oysters, which he serves to a number of families, as well as to the trade which he has coming to the store to get their lunches.

In the summer season he has one of the largest Ice Cream businesses in the city, selling as much as a thousand quarts a week when the weather is favorable. This is sold not only to the consumer but at wholesale as well as retail. All this is manufactured on the premises on the rear. All kinds of Confectionery are also kept in constant stock. Mr. Haines gives employment to eight assistants.

He is a native of the State of New Jersey and is prominently connected with the Masons and Red Men.

 ONE of the oldest and  most favorably thought of  houses in this neighborhood is Anthony's China Hall, this business having been here many years, the present proprietor's son, H. B. Anthony, having established the business in 1868, and the present proprietor took hold of it January 14th, 1878.

The store is about 20x80 feet in dimension. Two floors are used as show rooms. Here may be found one of the most complete stocks in the city. All kinds and descriptions of China and Glassware abound as well as a large Lamp Department, in which may be found all the newest and handsomest designs, as well as a full line of Lamp Fittings. A large House Furnishing Goods Department is also run, in which everything of the kind may be found. Six capable and genial assistants are employed. The store is fitted with electric lights and is one of the handsomest in this section.

 Mr. Anthony is a native of Northumberland, North-Cumberland County, Pa., but has been a resident of the citj' thirty-five years.

Your postcard 1910 Broadway& Kaighn has a large sort of wire looking column on corner. Well on that corner during World War II there was  metal pole painted green. On top there were two sirens for air raid warnings. When [I was very young] World War II ended, we were standing outside what was a cigar store I think by then. There were lots of people around. The siren went off, and everyone started shaking hands, patting each other on the back, even hugging. The siren was confirmation that the war in the Pacific was over. It didn't look like the old newsreel you see but everybody was happy as Hell!

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.

MEAL CAUSES ARREST OF 'TOMMY' MORELAND

Arrested early yesterday when he refused to pay a 50-cent check in a restaurant on Kaighn Avenue near Broadway, "Tommy" Moreland, of 1616 Broadway, was arraigned in police court and released with a suspended sentence.

Moreland, a well-known South Camden figure whose name has been connected with numbers activities In Philadelphia's Sixty-ninth street section, pleaded guilty to trying to dodge the meal charge.

Although he urged Police Judge Lewis Liberman to dispose of his case quickly in order that he might proceed to his employment as a stevedore in Philadelphia, Moreland was held here until both Camden and Philadelphia police notified the court he was not wanted on other charges.

Moreland has previously been convicted for receiving stolen goods and for voting illegally in the Eighth Ward

A. B. C. SMITH, CIGARS, 1736 BROADWAY

Lovers of a good Cigar like to congregate where such an article can be obtained, and among the prominent places of that kind in this section may be mentioned that of Mr. Smith.

The store is about 20x30 feet in dimensions, with a sitting room back. A large and choice selection of Imported and Domestic Cigars can be obtained here, as well as a fine line of Smoking and Chewing Tobaccos, Cigarettes, Pipes and Smokers' Articles.

Mr. Smith is a native of the city, and has always
been prominent in looking towards the city's best interests. He formerly held the position of police officer in this district.

The Waldenmaier's operated a boarding house at this location. They reside here through 1913, then moved to 1819 Broadway, where Christian Waldenmaier operated a saloon. Mr. & Mrs. Waldenmaier are listed here in the 1929 City Directory. Mrs. Waldenmaier appears to have moved back to 1819 Broadway prior to the compilation of the 1931 City Directory.
