Lorenzo DellaValle

It is a note of interest when everybody come to a unanimous agreement about anything. This time our 2 fine neighborhood newspapers both covered the honor bestowed upon Lorenzo DellaValle by City Council.

I still remember shortly after turning 11 the pictures on TV of the sinking of the Andrea Doria. One famous Philadelphian, then mayor Richardson Dilworth was on board. Unknown at the time, to us, was that a future famous Frankford resident was also on board coming to America.

Read the story from the Gleaner and the Northeast Times and don’t forget to wave when you walk by Lorenzo’s shop on Frankford Avenue near Harrison.
