2014: MY SUNDAY "SENTIMENTAL JOURNEY" COLUMN IN THE TIMES
Thanks to Mr. Dennis Hawver of West Windsor for this interesting link to the 1950's in the Delaware Valley.
Liked your Sunday column on earlier TV. Here's a video from only 58 years ago (only???)
Notice all the things and places that aren't there anymore!
Thought you might like to re-see a little history ---
This is a Mid-Fifties slice of life and landscape in Philadelphia and its surrounding towns, with excellent color footage of downtown scenes, neighborhoods, the Mummers Parade, Levittown, factories in Camden, NJ, and many other subjects that can no longer be seen.
It was produced at the time by WPTZ Channel 3, now known as KYW CBS 3. Pete Boyle Sr., father of Pete Boyle, cast member of Everybody Loves Raymond, had a children's show and is briefly shown in this clip. Some good shots of Dock Street as well. Notice too that all the cars shown are American!
