Photo Essay: I Used to Walk to School

A few weeks ago it was so warm I retraced my walk to high school from Penn and Harrison to North Catholic at Torresdale and Hunting Park.

    I love the photo essay!!

    Just a note: the “wall art across from Marshall’s” is actually the wall art at the Frankford Friends Community Garden, created last year by Frankford Friends students under the direction of Frankford resident and art teacher Rufus Standerfer…

    Thanks. If Mr. Standerfer does anything more like that in the future, ask him to let us know. We love covering good news in Frankford.

    I am so sad to hear that. I went to Little Flower and we used have such a great time at mixers there in the late 1960’s. Anyone remember mixers?
