CAMDEN, NEW JERSEY
MOVIES, DINING, NIGHTLIFE, & GENERAL FUN
In Camden and Vicinity
June 10, 1960
As time passed and the the suburban towns evolved, more and more business opened to cater to the recreational desires of those folks who had moved tot he suburbs. The opening of the Garden State Race Track in Delaware Township (present-day Cherry Hill) in the 1940s created a market along what is now Route 70 and Route 38. Other business opened up in the region. Some were new establishments, others had roots going back many years.
Today most of the business that will be mentioned below are long gone, but I know that for those who visit this page, those names and the images accompanying them will bring happy memories.
I would very much like to find out and post some information and photos of some of some of the live acts advertised below. Some of course are relatively famous... Gerry Mulligan, Earl Bostic, and Steve Gibson & the Red Caps for example. Then there are some less well known today.... after all, who wouldn't want to know about "The Senstional Trolley Car and her Motormen", "The 3 Leaders featuring Acey Ducey", and "Johnny B. and the Rock-a-Bops"? If you have any information on some of these acts, please contact me by e-mail.
As always, HAVE FUN!!
