If you grew up in Kensington, Fishtown, Port Richmond , Frankford , Harrowgate, Juniata, Wissinoming, Northern Liberties, Tacony, Mayfair, Bridesburg, Torresdale....or just about anywhere else in Philly in the 1970's or 80's, our friend Bill Mettinger has written a great book for you! Pimple Balls, "Halfies," "Chucks," Sellin' Pretzels, Scrubbing the Steps, Ridin' the EL, Shopping on the Ave, Goin' to K&A, Playing under the Fireplug, Runnin' from the Cops, Candy Stores, Corner Bars, Hucksters, Pizza Trucks, Fistfights, Hoagies, Cheesesteaks, Midway Movies, Kelly's Korner, Levins, Record Spot, The Swimmo, May Processions, Ramblers, Needle Park.....we hope Bill's memories stir up some of yours. Maybe your stories crossed paths somewhere? If you grew up in the Kensington area, there's a good chance they did. Maybe we met at the Midway Theater, a Kensington Ramblers game or a church dance. Possibly we even had a fistfight in a schoolyard or checked out the same girl as she walked down Kensington Ave. Get the book and find out. Sorry, it's not available at Kelly's Corner or Levin's, but you can go back in time right here!
