Remembered: Philadelphia’s Old Strawberry Mansion Neighborhood

“Radio Rick” Spector’s mom, Sylvia, poses with his sister , Marsha, 1943. The picture was snapped at “Rodeo Ben’s”, America’s premier purveyor of western wear, 3209 Columbia Avenue, Strawberry Mansion, Philadelphia.

Old Strawberry Mansion was a historic North Philadelphia neighborhood. Moviehouse Productions’ special guest is Shelly Rosen who related her experiences growing up in the “Mansion” between 1940-1956.

The western boundary of Strawberry Mansion has been updated to include a section of 34th Street just south of Lehigh Avenue.
