Life in West Oak Lane, Philadelphia 1950-1967 and other recollections
Did you know that JFK was driven down Washington Lane during his first Presidential campaign? I saw him while standing on the corner of Washington Lane (1700 block) and Lowber Avenue, outside the fence of the crematorium (Chelten Hills Cemetary). Yes, bodies were being burned in our neighborhood. The crematorium property ran from Washington lane until Upsal Street.
Remembering Atlantic City
Atlantic City has always had a special place in our growing up. We referred to it as "the shore" or "going down the shore", This was an annual or semi annual pilgrimage of many Philadelphians.
Atlantic City hosted LBJ and company in 1964 and it was not an artistic success
