Philly.com on June 4, 2007 reports: “A swastika and “666” were painted on the Word of Faith Church, Leiper Street near Orthodox, Frankford, sometime early Saturday, police said, who are investigating.”
Not too much you can say about that except that it didn’t attract very much publicity. Now I wonder why that would be.
This is the link to the story. http://cbs3.com/topstories/local_story_155155805.html
I won’t even ask why this kid was out at that time of day, alone in violation of the city curfew laws. She is no less a victim of a crime. On the other hand, what kind of parents or guardians are they who would let a girl that age out at that time of day.
There is a very nice illustrated history of Frankford written in 1912 available on line. Take a look. It is interesting not only for the history but also because it has many period advertisements. http://www.phillyh2o.org/backpages/frankford_1912.htm
We have a new link over to the right going to the Grand Army of the Republic Museum and Library web site. Check them out and then write a check for membership to support this great institution.
