If anyone wants a phenominal tasting danish or cream doughnut go to the Hatboro bakery on hatboro rd. When I lived in Horsham, I would always go there for all of my sweet-tooth needs!

Nino,

Your sooooo right about the bakery! I especially remember the Lemon Squares. My mother would make fresh coffee every morning, and I would proceed to dunk the squares into it, nothing else compares...

Loved that bakery!!!! The best butter cake. Walking home from the El everyday from work. Couldn't help but stop in due to the wonderful smell coming onto the street. Haven't seen a butter cake in years.

Just came across this great site, memories, sure do have a few. I lived on the corner of 3900 I st and then above the bakery my parents, Frieda and Henry Haller owned on the corner of Luzerne and Markland St. Still keep in touch with George Mock, Anthony Lauren, and a few others. We all lived within three blocks of each other, miles apart now but still together, left Phila. in 64, no reason to return, it's not the same.

Fred, I skated all the time. Favorite was from top to Lycoming St Android "M" all the way down the hill to around the bend at Hunting Park Ave near Harbisons & to course Saturdays were usually spent at Pla-Mor rink in Fkd. Ave near St Joan to Arc or one on Kensington Ave; can't remember the name. After St Joe'e we'd all go to the NE diner "O" & Erie, fun times, great memories.
Glad I found this site, maybe I'll see some familiar names.

Mary brought some great memories to mind. I remember going to St Joe's on Sunday nights riding the Trolly, lots of fun and a great cause.

Remember the early outs from Holy Inn when we had the bad snnow, we were all back out there building snow forts. Remember Roller Skating in the street,(few cars then), and making a skating path in the street. Remember playing bottle caps in the street and developing some strategies like putting wax in the bottle cap to make it more deadly to knock your opponents out. I remember playing in a band and having practices in my celler. Could have made money on enterance tickets. There are so many great times had there...sure miss it!
Juniata was agreat place in the 50's and 60's,

Hi;
Accidentally stumbled upon this website. I lived at 1534 E. Lycoming St until I got married in 1961. Wonder if there are any to the "Old", I mean former residents still there? Loved the walk down memory lane. I haven' t read all the entries but plan to. My best friend Bernice lived at 1544 E. Lycoming St. I went to Holy Inn; she to Hopkinson. Spent many weekends at dances @ St. Dominics, St. Tim's, Starlight Ballroom, and the best to all St Joseph House "The Hut" at 16th & Allegheny. We always wondered what became to those St. Joe's Boys we dwe danced with, brought them to our home, & picniced at Blvd pools. Great memories. I now live in FL with my Philly U.S. Navy retired husband, he graduated from NE Catholic.
