I went to Overbrook from 1972 to 1976, then moved to FL and graduated from Hudson High in 1978. Where are you in Spring Hill? I live off of Deltona.

And where did you live in NJ? I was in the Garden Lake Section on 5th & Cottage. Now that house was haunted!!! If you are familiar with the area, it was the big old gray house on the hill.

I remember 7 Hills! If that was in Lindenwold??

My Grandparents lived on Smith Terrace for many, many years! My parents used to live on Narragansett (before I was born), my Aunt on Clementon Ave, and my great Aunt on Berlin Road, across from the ball park. That area was densely populated by my family members.....all gone now.

How about sledding on Higgins Ave. and Smith Terrace. We also use to sled on Princeton Rd. down onto Erial Rd. That was a little dangerous. Does anyone remember sleddig at the 7 Hills?

I remember the salt and pepper shakers. I remember when one came off that was full of nuns! I wasn't there at the time.

The fireworks were every Friday night. Back in the day my grandmother sold tickets in the park. There was no asphalt. It was all gravel. Instead of the ferry boat, there were 2 speed boats and they took you for 2 laps aroound the small lighthouse at each end of the lake. The original ferris wheel came from Chigaco. We also use to rent the row boats at the back end of the lake. How many people remember the 3 silver rocket ships and the salt and pepper shacker.

Does anyone remember the fireworks that were at the #2 Fire Hall in Lindenwold every 4th of July? I LOVED them, and they were the best anywhere, ever! They even beat Disney World here in Florida! I LOVED growing up in Jersey. My kids will never have what I had growing up there.

I think I vaugely remember the produce stand. I remember all you Tophams who lived on Erial Rd, all your names started with "L" ,right? Does your family still live in the house? We walked past there every day, walking to school or in the summer, the park. We used to throw rocks at the turtles on the pond down that road thet lead to the RR tracks (shortcut to the park) We also threw rocks at those glass things (forget their name) on the poles by the tracks...once in awhile we'd break them. What are they for? Gale, Remember rolling other peoples metal trash cans and lids down Davis Ave? Can you imagine driving up Erial Rd and having a trash can smashing into your car?? lol

Connie,
Those glass things on the poles are insulators. The wire athat went from pole to pole would be placed on them so they wouldn't ground out. Later on glass was replaced by ceramic. Also, did you have a brother name BOB. I think he might have been a year or two ahead of me in school.

I also remember when the salt & pepper shaker flew off with the nuns. I think it hit the big ice cream cone that was on top of the custard stand right next to it.

Yes Connie, The photographer is my father. We lived on the corner of Holly Rd. and Blackwood Rd. My dad and mom are now living in Gloucester Twp. and there in there 80's and going strong. He took all those class pictures you might still have when we went to the Primary School and Gibbs School. He also took a lot of wedding pictures. As a kid I can remember the wedding parties showing up at the house and getting there pictures taken. The front part of the house is where the studio use to be. It was turned into a bedroom after he gave up the business.

The shoe store that had the flourescope was next to the drug store that was next to Frishes Department Store. I remember when Sid Waters Daughter and I used to play at the Saturday Talent show in the Warner Brother Movie that was next to the Clementon Sweet Shop and Sid's Store. I used to love the Balcony in the theater and also working there as both an usher and then the doorman. Almost everyone remember Aunt Jennie the lady who ran the Candy counter there. That was back in the days when the Public Service Bus co had the Route 53, 51, and 61 that all stopped in Clementon. I remember riding the PRR seashore line train to work at Lit Brothers in Camden and riding
back in the evening on the coal burning Trains.

How about the gang fights that used to take place in Clementon lake park on Friday Nights after the Firework shows.

How about the moonlight swims at apple lake, just above Pillings lake ?

Ain't much of anything still left 'cept for the park.

Justin, I knew Pete, and Gus from the old store that was right at the railroad crossing on the berlin side of the tracks. Your Great grand father was a favorite when the family used to live on atlantic avenue not far freom Youngs market which was a fruit stand/store at Atlantic and Erial intersection.

<quoted text> Hey I just found this sight and find it very interesting. Pete Pino was my grandfather and apparently I grew up in the same house as you lived in on Lincoln Ave. next to the store.Do you remember Gus? My grandfather told me many funny stories about the characters that used to come into the store.Does anyone remember Franks pool hall or the feed store (dont know the name) next to franks? Anyone remember Charlie Valerio? Or Stanley who worked in Petes and I believe was a fireman also.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
