Federal
Street


Federal Street was originally called Joseph Cooper’s Lane, and ran from the river to the old Haddonfield Road. In 1803 Joshua Cooper, who was an ardent Federalist, called it Federal Street. His father, Daniel Cooper, had, in 1764, built a large three-story brick house and established a ferry about the same time to Philadelphia. This lane was to provide the farmers in the area a way to get to the ferry.

When a new road was authorized between Mount Holly and Cooper’s Creek (known today as the Cooper River), the act stated that it should end at the Delaware River. On Oct 21, 1794 the route was laid out between Cooper’s Creek and Joshua Cooper’s Ferry. 

Federal Street developed into one of the primary east-west streets in Camden. The intersection of Federal Street and Broadway is considered by most to be, in modern times, the "center of center city Camden." At this intersection in past times stood Camden Catholic High School, the Camden County Courthouse, and the Munger & Long Department Store building, later the home of a J.C. Penney Department Store branch. Federal Street between the Delaware River and the Cooper featured many shops, home, and small businesses prior to being subjected to various urban renewal projects in the latter half of the 20th century.   

Once built, Federal Street northeast of the Cooper River ran through Stockton Township (present-day East Camden), Merchantville, and Moorestown on its way to Mount Holly. In the 1800s a stage coach line was established, that ran from Cooper's ferry to the Halfway Inn, which stood at 36th and Federal Streets, near the toll gate. The stage ran until the advent of horse cars, around 1890. George W. Loper was the last surviving stage driver, passing away in 1942. Stockton Township, which, in its last years consisted of all of present-day Camden northeast of the Cooper, was finally annexed to Camden in 1899. Shortly thereafter, the City of Camden built a library, police station, and fire house at the intersection of Federal Street and Westfield Avenue. These buildings are still standing in 2003, and the fire house has been in continuous use as such since its erection. Also still in existence, although the exterior has been extensively altered, is the toll house at 36th and Federal Street.

In the first part of the 29th Century, as Camden experienced its boom years, Federal Street between the Cooper River and 20th Street became the home of several large commercial enterprises, including the Warren Webster & Company plant, which manufactured heating systems, and the DuBell Lumber Company. There also were several new car dealerships, and a busy retail district between Marlton Pike and 27th Street.

Federal Street passes in front of where stood the estate of Thomas H. Dudley. Known in modern times as Dudley Grange, and the site of a Camden County owned and operated park, the Dudley mansion served as the East Camden branch of Camden's public library system through the 1970s.  Camden's third public high school, Woodrow Wilson High School, also lies on Federal Street, opposite Dudley Grange.

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

THE furnishing goods business is now an enormous branch of industry, and employs many thousands of men, women and children, and nothing in it is more remarkable than its rapid development. The house we now mention was established by Andrews & Bro., who were succeeded in 1886 by the present proprietor, L. E. Roberts.

This fine store is situated at the corner of Third and Federal Streets. The salesroom is 38x44 feet in dimensions, and the trade is Hats and Furnishing Goods, of which a heavy stock is always carried, and the assortment embraces everything desirable in both departments. The trade is large and requires the services of several assistants.

Mr. Roberts was born in Pennsylvania, but has resided in Camden for the past fifteen years. He was formerly a watch-case manufacturer in Philadelphia. He is a member of the Masonic Order and of the Camden Club.

LANGENDORF'S JEWELRY STORE, 
320 FEDERAL STREET

THE oldest Jewelry house in Camden is that of D. G. Langendorf, Jeweler and Watchmaker, who established himself here in 1865. He has a fine salesroom of 20 x 80 feet, amply stocked with everything belonging to this line of trade, including American and Swiss Watches, Clocks (American and French), Silverware of fine qualities and elegant in design, Optical Goods, Gold-headed Canes, and a fine selection of Diamonds, Umbrellas, Bronzes, and a choice collection of Fancy Goods. Several assistants are employed, and Repairing is made a prominent specialty.

Mr. Langendorf is a native of Bohemia, and was always a jeweler. He came to this country thirty-four years ago, in his boyhood, and is as thoroughly an American as if he had been born under the Stars and Stripes, whose enemies he encountered while serving in F Company of the 32d Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteers, at Hagerstown and elsewhere.

W. R. FEARN, 326 FEDERAL STREET,
PHOTOGRAPHY

The art of photography has developed to a marvelous degree of excellence. In Camden one of the most reliable and successful of artists is W. R. Fearn, who has his studio at 326 Federal street, where it was established about seven years ago by Mr. Fearn, who was succeeded by his brother, Fred. Fearn, who carried it on-for six years, when it again came into the hands of its present proprietor. It occupies the second floor. The establishment is fitted up with every appliance for the execution of the best work. Four experienced and competent assistants are employed, and a high class of work has made the house celebrated. 

Mr. Fearn was born in New York, and has twenty-five years' experience; has been in Camden eighteen years.

George W. Jobes
Heaters, Ranges & Roofing of all kinds

My family has deep roots in Camden, back at least to 1840.  George W. Jobes was a tinner and tinsmith at 35 Fourth Street and by 1880 had a store at 328 Federal Street. The family lived above the shop for three generations until my grandparents moved to Audubon in 1930s.  The business passed to sons Pancoast (Pank) Jobes and then to Everett for awhile.

George W. was the father of William Jobes, killed in the armory fire of 1906. The irony is that George W. served in Civil War with the Sixth Regiment.  

My grandfather Everett played on a few different Camden baseball teams in the 1910s. I even have newspaper clippings and the scores from games that he recorded in his diaries. He was quite the star but he didn't go to Camden High. He went to Pennington Academy. 

George W. Jobes' brother, Samuel B. Jobes, was Captain and hero of Bliss Farm at Gettysburg.

G. F. CASSELMAN, 336 FEDERAL STREET
BOOTS AND SHOES
.

One of the neatest and most attractive business places in the city is the store of G.F. Casselman at No. 336 Federal street, dealer in Fine Boots and Shoes-a general assortment for ladies, gentlemen and children, including slippers of all kinds and rubbers.

The business was established by the father of the present proprietor in 1855, who was succeeded by his son in 1877. The store is 18 x 32 feet in dimensions, and the trade is of course chiefly local. Beside the ready-made goods, custom work and repairing have their department, which is in charge of an assistant.

Mr. Casselman is a native of Philadelphia, and has been all his life a shoe dealer, consequently understands every detail of the business, and is able to buy and sell to the best advantage. He is prominently identified with the I. 0. 0. F. and the A. 0. U. W., two organizations having a large membership in Camden.

Federal Street West of 5th Street -1890s

Federal Street before 1900 presented this view from 5th Street, looking west. The now gone Camden Fire Insurance building and the Public Service Building, which since the 1980s has housed the Camden Free Public Library, soon replaced the two structures on the left, which were both occupied by those entities when this photo was taken. Beyond the M.S. Erwin Grocer building one can see what was in 1885 the Post Office and the Federal Street Market with its arched roof.

RECEIVER IS ASKED FOR FINANCE CONCERN

Charging fraud in the transfer of stock, Carl L. Farner and stockholders of the National Industrial Finance Association of Camden yesterday petitioned Vice Chancellor Francis B. Davis to appoint a receiver for the company.

The court also is asked to restrain the defendants from proceeding with an exchange of stock with the National Lycoming Corporation, of Williamsport, Pa., and to make a discovery of all matters connected with the Lycoming company.

Albert Bayley, secretary-treasurer of the National company, was on the witness stand most of the day, producing records of the firm. The 1100 stockholders represented in the case own between $400,000 and $500,000 of the company's stock.

Federal Street Restaurant Denies
Philadelphia Concern Has Right to Label

Vice Chancellor Francis B. Davis has fixed June 19 at 10 a.m. as the date for Linton's Lunch to show cause why a preliminary injunction should not issue against it for using a name similar to the Lintonia Pure Food Shop, Inc., a restaurant at 530 Federal street, a few doors distant and on the same side of the street.

Linton's Lunch, a Philadelphia company, has made renovations at 538 Federal Street for a restauraunt.

A sign, "Linton's Lunch," appears on the window, and the opening date is expected to be announced within a few days. The site was occupied for many years by Sig Schoenagle as a haberdashery.

The preliminary injunction against using the name Linton's Lunch is sought by Gus A. Chigounis; president and general manager of the Lintonia.

Chigounis charged through his attorney, Edward West, that use by Linton's of a name similar to that of his establishment is an attempt "to deceive the public" that both places are under one management, and therefore represents unfair competition.

Chigounis said the Lintonia has spent approximately $3000 in newspaper advertisements and the radio to "build up" the name, Lintonia, in Camden.

He said his place has a reputation for quality food and service and has 18 efficient employees. Warning to Linton's, he said, not to use the name similar to the Lintonia was not heeded, he added.

Linton's side of the case is expected to be heard at the preliminary hearing June 19.

9 NABBED IN CHECK ON RECKLESS DRIVING
State Agents Warn Patrons of Cafes,
Patrol Road at Early Hour

A three-hour drive conducted by State motor vehicle inspectors against reckless driving on Crescent boulevard between West Col-lingswood and 
Brooklawn early yesterday netted nine arrests.

The drive also included cursory inspection of patrons leaving cafes and inns at the 2 o'clock closing hour. Many drivers accepted the advice of inspectors to permit other licensed drivers to take them home.

Justice of the Peace Oliver J. Stetser, of Gloucester, was summoned from bed to arraign the nine men, all of whom had been arrested between 1 and 4 a. m. Several drivers were examined by Dr. George M. Adams, of 
Gloucester, but none was pronounced intoxicated or unfit to drive.

Those fined by Stetser were Joseph T. Pfisterer, 24, of 53 North Johnson boulevard, Gloucester, driving on rim of wheel, $50; Henry Geiger, 23, Mantua; Henry V. Marsh, 823 Tatum street, Woodbury, $15, speeding; 
Myers B, Fisher, 25, Westville, and Aloysius Elliott, 31, 419 Hunter street, Gloucester, $10 each, speeding; Edward Corbett, 24, 724 Federal street, Camden, improper registration; George Dunner, 25, Lake tract, 
Woodbury; Alphonse Besogni Westville Grove, and Anna M. Unger, 25, 716 Bailey street, Camden, $10 each, no drivers' licenses.

"ROLLED" FOR $100, PHILA. VISITOR SAYS
Man, Accused of Getting Money is Held by Grand Jury

Members of the grand jury will have an opportunity to decide whether a Philadelphian attending a party in Camden was "rolled" for $100.

Police Judge Pancoast Saturday passed on to the grand jury the problem of Fred Peegan, 40, of 1519 Palethorp Street, Philadelphia, who caused the arrest of Richard Wagner, 25, of 1136 Federal Street. Peegan said he came to Camden Friday night for a party, imbibed a little too freely and laid down to "sleep it off."

He woke up to find Wagner going through his pockets, Peegan told the judge. Wagner fled, Peegan said, and he caught him in an alley, holding him until police arrived. Wagner denied he had taken any money from Peegan's pockets and said a girl who accompanied Peegan to Camden left soon after the party started at the Wagner home. 

Peegan denied the party was at Wagner's house, but said it was in a South Camden residence but could not tell where. 

"I am of the opinion that it was your own fault for coming to Camden, drinking too much, and losing your money, if you lost it as you say you did," Judge Pancoast told Peegan. "However, I am going to let the grand jury decide the issue." 

Judge Pancoast released Wagner in his own recognizance for the grand jury and held Peegan in $1000 bail as a material witness.

Alcorn Motor Sales
Joseph A. Alcorn & William "Skip" Gardner

My father, Joseph A. Alcorn, had a used car dealership on the corner of 15th and Federal Streets. He started the business with Skip Gardner as his partner in the late 40's and bought Skip out during that same period. Alcorn Motor Sales was a vibrant business. I recall visiting Art Sharp and Bill Mason as dad bought and sold cars from and for them as well as the automobiles on his lot. My father was a member of the various parishes in Camden and its suburbs. He was born and raised in North Camden, moved to East Camden after World War II when he was discharged from the Marines, later moved to Pennsauken, and finally to Haddon Heights. Dad died in 1958 at 39 years of age, but left a rich legacy for his family, friends, business associates and the many people he helped throughout his lifetime.

CHARGES WATCH STOLEN; CIVIL SUIT IS ADVISED

The story of how she saw on another woman's wrist a watch which had been stolen from her "hope chest" was told in police court yesterday by Mrs. Mabel Barrett, 1535 Federal Street.

Mrs. Barrett appeared as a complaining witness against George Zimmerman 27, of 27 Morse Street, charging him with possession of a stolen wristwatch. The woman said the watch was taken from her trunk and same days later, she saw Mrs. Zimmerman wearing it.

Zimmerman admitted his wile has a new watch, but he said he purchased it from a man in Delaware.

Judge Pancoast dismissed the complaint and told Mrs. Barrett that she would have to sue in civil court to recover the watch.

State Street at the end of the row.  That was before the overpass was built and they had crossing gates and an attendant at the railroad tracks. A fellow named Vince owned the Grapevine...can't remember his last name..."l

Stockton Hose Company No. 2

The Stockton Hose Company No.2 was incorporated on December 14, 1892 by David Austermuhl, E.F. McMenimen, John F. Renner and George J. Swope. The company actually had been organized several months prior to its formal incorporation. Their apparatus was quartered in an old blacksmith shop at 2407 Federal Street; the shop had been altered to accommodate the company's needs. This structure was razed and a new firehouse erected on the same site in 1897. In 1900 Elmer E. Stevens was Foreman; William H. Mershon, President; Martin J. Ryan, Vice-
president; R. H. Plum, Recording Secretary; Samuel Wentz, Financial Secretary and Josiah Jones, Treasurer. The building was bought by
Nicholas Donahoe shortly before the 1903 City Directory was compiled. He used the building as a cigar store, a hall, and as a residence until selling in 1925.

COP SAVES CHILDREN WHEN HORSE BOLTS
Seizes Animal Which Had Been Crazed by Sting of Bee 

Stung by a bee, a runaway horse endangered the lives of children in East Camden yesterday, struck two automobiles and was finally seized and halted by a policeman after a mad dash of two blocks. 

The horse was attached to a wagon of the Scott Powell dairies and ran away while its driver, Hugh Wood, of Marlton Pike and Federal Streets, was delivering milk on South Twenty-fourth Street near Federal. The runaway occurred shortly before noon. 

Suddenly, the animal reared in the shafts of the wagon and galloped north on South Twenty-fourth Street. Nearing Federal Street, the wagon struck the automobile of Howard Johnson, of 6037 Jefferson Avenue, Merchantville, and the truck of J. Roy McKay, 2402 Federal Street

After crashing into the automobiles, the horse freed itself from the shafts as the wagon was upset in the street, strewing quarts of milk over the highway. As the frenzied animal continued its dash, mothers ran screaming into the street, seized their children and hurried with them to safety. 

At Twenty-fifth and Federal Street, Policeman Walter Christy saw the animal and seized it by its bridle as it passed. Christy was dragged several feet before he could halt the horse, which suffered only slight leg injuries in the runaway.

As early as 1936 until the early 1960s this building was the home of the Rathskeller Cafe. In the early 1960s it changed hands, and was known as the Sports Lounge (and in the neighborhood as Mike Love's) until the mid 1970s, when it was renamed the Satellite Lounge. In the mid 1990s the bar portion of the business was discontinued, and retail liquor sales were conducted as Federal Liquor,

...... we were still at 2631 Carman until 1967 (not 1964) so it was a total of 28 years. Some other memory jogs were the original name of the bank right in back of us was the Camden Trust Company. The original name of the bar before Mike Love’s (Satellite Lounge) was “The Rathskeller”.

Other very clear and accurate (as I know it’s important) Federal Street memories:

The Victory [Victoria] Theater Movie House - at the corner of 26th and Federal Streets. It was an ornately decorated old movie theater with a five cent fee, later increased in two stages to 12 cents then 25 cents. On Saturdays, the Victoria always played a double feature run. I’ll never forget my brother John and me watching Superman and the Mole Men at one showing. This was before the Arlo Movie up the street on the Westfield side was built. During the building of the Arlo, John and I played on the steel girders and other construction elements. After it got run down, the Victory remained boarded up and vacant for many years and was finally torn down to make way for a new diner.

The Holly Diner - When the diner first opened it was called the Holly Diner and we hung out there nightly (Jimmy Devenny, Jerry Molineaux, Mike Comardo, Wayne Ingram, Frank Hubler, Don Grille, Russ Chandler, Richard Chandler, Pee Wee Bartolino, Bobby Jones, Richie Middleton, Joe McGinnis, etc., etc.). This was directly across the street from Woolworths 5 &10 Cent Store. Woolworths had a lunch counter and soda fountain in full operation in addition to their retail business. To make sure you have the exact location, the Victoria was where the diner still stands today in East Camden at the corner of 26th and Federal. I wish I knew the exact street address but I don’t. The movie doors faced Federal so it must have had a Federal Street address.

Merritt’s - Rexall Drug Store - On the opposite corner of 26th and Federal going north, across from the Victoria also facing Federal was the MAB Paint Store, then the Rexall Drug Store which also had a small lunch counter and soda fountain and a great comic book section where we would sit and read as many as we could before we wore out our welcome. The Rexall was operated by Mrs. Mints (or Mintz it was pronounced). We befriended her and others in the store and they allowed us to read the comic books. If and when we had the money we would visit the soda fountain.

Horn & Hardart's – Next to Rexall Drugs was the Horn & Hardart's Store. The Horn & Hardart's northern most building wall ran along the drive-in passenger car way for the bank (Camden Trust Company). We would walk out our back door, walk across the bank's parking lot, the rear side of the bank, up the drive in paved way and right into Horn & Hardart's.

I’m going to long so here is an exact recap of the entire block on (all doors facing) Federal between 26th and 27th  during our childhood. These were pretty well set between 1949/50 – 1956/57.

Merritt’s Rexall Drug Store

Camden Trust Company  Alley Way to rear parking lot  

The Rathkeller, later Mike Love’s Bar

M&M Tailors (owned by Marty) – later mover across the street to the Westfield side next to Elwell’s Jeweler store and Sugar Bowl.

2 Stores that kept changing occupants so no long memories for these 2 locations.

The Ros-Mor Apartments

Alley way to Ros-Mor’s Garage Parking – our house touched the back of the garages.

Bigler’s Flower Shop – We all grew up with Joan Bigler (Joanie).

Doctor Newmeyer’s Office – an OBGYN. My two sons were delivered by him. 

The Sun Shoe Repair Store – great red leather booths where you could take off your shoes and wait while they were repaired. The cobblers did their work behind large glass windows so outsiders could watch their skill. 

The Acme Market – I “took orders” from here, pushing carts home for the elderly and others for a quarter.

Lynch’s Dry Cleaning Store 

The Gulf Gas Station run by a tall good natured guy named George. I used to get him lunch from the Sugar Bowl for 15/25 cents. This was the end of the block, right across the street from the Fire House and the bays of the Gulf Station facing 27th and the island.

You really do have to click on the image and see this one enlarged to appreciate it.

TWO MEN ARRESTED AFTER AUTO CRASH
Threat to Kill Alleged Against One;
Driver of Second Car Makes Complaint

 Basil Cook, 44, of 449 North Fifth Street, was arrested on charges of assault and battery and threat to kill, and James Fenton, 32, of 834 North Sixth street, was held for reckless driving and disorderly conduct last night on complaint of C. N. Morrow, of 7 North Twenty-eighth Street, following an automobile accident. They will be arraigned in police court today.

Cook and Fenton were booked as "drunk" by Sergeant Stiles Whittaker, though Morrow declined to press such charges against them. Fenton was released later on $40 security.

Morrow was driving west on Federal Street and Fenton, in whose car Cook was passenger, was proceeding east. Fenton's car turned left into Leonard Avenue. Morrow charged that Fenton then backed into Morrow's car.

Morrow got out of his car and an argument ensued. Morrow is alleged to have accused Cook and Fenton of being drunk When Morrow went into a nearby store to telephone for police, Cook is alleged to have followed him, grabbed him by the throat and threatened to kill him. Morrow then struck Cook and broke his hold.

When the Third district police patrol arrived, Cook was standing in the street. He was arrested by Patrolman Elwood Humphreys. Fenton ran into the store and refused to leave. He was dragged from the place by Patrolman Joseph Shreeves.

In the early 1940s Herman Clark Tribolet roomed here. After being inducted into the Army, Private Tribolet served at Camp Pickett VA in July of 1943. On leave, he was riding in a car with four other soldiers when the car was struck by a bus at Berlin NJ. All five soldiers were killed in the accident. 

After the war, 2748 Federal housed a business called Fair Variety, selling toys, trains and other hobby items. In 2003 the building was the home of Costa Verde Travel. By 2011 it was once again a barber shop as a new business, the VIP Barber Shop, had opened.

My grandparents (Joe and Ann Petzitello) lived at 2762 Federal where the shop was until approximately 1981. At age 81, my grandfather closed the shop, sold the house and moved to an apartment in Somerdale in 1981. I didn't know the year the barber shop was opened. My dad told me before they bought 2762, they rented a house and shop a few doors down on Federal - where Carl's Hardware was in the 1960's early 1970's.

DUDLEY GRANGE

Dudley Grange Park is located at Federal and Dudley Streets in East Camden. The park is on the remainder of the Thomas H. Dudley estate. The Dudley house was the home of the East Camden branch of the Camden Free Public Library up until the late 1970s. Neglect on the part of city government resulted in the destruction of this historic building by fire in August of 1980. Responsibility for the care and upkeep of Dudley Grange Park fell to Camden County in the 1990s.

3203 Federal Street

March 13, 2004

This was the home of Fridolin and Mathilda Spuhler and family. His father, Frederick Spuhler, was born in Switzerland, and had come to what is now East Camden from Philadelphia around the beginning of 1862 and operated a grocery store near 27th and Thompson Streets, retiring around 1890. Fridolin Spuhler kept the business and operated with great success. It is likely that he had this house built for his family, possibly in the 1890s. The Spuhlers were living there by 1910.

The home remained in the family as late as 1947. By 1956 It had been sold Mason Bradley, who operated a funeral parlor there into the 1980s.

Fridolin Spuhler was one of the original members of St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church, which originally stood at North 25th and Howell Streets.

Son Harry Spuhler operated Spuhler's Cafe on Federal Street from the 1930s through the early 1960s.

Rosedale Fire Company No. 4

The Rosedale Fire Company was organized in the 1890s, when what is now East Camden was part of Stockton Township. This is the only known picture of the building during its Fire Department days. 

Irving Cartun later acquired the building and founded his hardware store there. He operated at this address through at least 1936. By 1947 he had moved his store across the street to 3514-3516 Federal, and also utilized 3512 in later years. This building was used as a warehouse for many years before its was demolished.
