Did you grow up in an old Philadelphia neighborhood in the Northeast, Logan, West Oak Lane, Strawberry Mansion, or West or South Philly? There was nothing like it…the closeness the row house environment bred, shopping or watching a movie on the avenue where all your needs were met within walking distance, and playing ball in the back driveway in your own make-believe stadium. Utilizing filmed interviews, slides, live commentary and audience participation, everyday Philadelphia life will be explored from the 1940s – 1970s.
Fee: $41.00
