Test Pattern

I am so sorry for the interruption to my postings,
each move gets a little harder on me and I take longer to get all my boxes open.
The packers with this transplant were terrible in marking the boxes and I have no idea what to expect when I open them, still looking for all my photos. So in the interum if you have anything you would like to share , please send me some emails with pictures to add, after all this is for the whole family and future generations to enjoy.
Thanks for your support and comments,
enjoy the holidays
Any old Christmas photos would be fun to share...
after all "Tis the season"

Strawbridge and Clothier

Strawbridge and Clothier
Philadelphia PA 1912
My Grandmother, Florence Powell, worked for Strawbridges
before I was born, into her retirement at 63.
Started at the downtown store and later transferred to the new
Springfield store.
Going to visit her downtown at work was always such a treat, the old department stores were so grande, she worked in the ladies uniform and clothing dept. Best part was riding the wooden escalators or the elevators with attendants in them to push the buttons and call out the items available on each floor. Plus we got to ride the el downtown.

After World War II, many people took advantage of the huge excursion ships of Wilson Line which had been in business for a century or so. These boats ferried 800 passengers from Philadelphia to a New Jersey park, traveling down the Delaware River to the now called "Riverview Beach Park." It was a short trip, about 34 miles and took about 75 minutes each direction. The company ran two ships; one was the SS Liberty Belle and the other was the SS Delaware Belle.
