CAMDEN, NEW JERSEY
839 Market Street
Owned and operated for many years by John MacDougall, Mac's Bar was a fixture from before World War I through at least the fall of 1959 at 839 Market Street. He remained open during Prohibition under a "soft drink" license. When Prohibition was repealed he was granted his beer license on June 30, 1933.
Photo taken before the fire shows the Hollingshead industrial complex amid congested residential construction.
Virtually everything in this picture no longer exists, some lost to fire, most lost to "urban renewal" and highway construction, with one exception, the office building at 9th & Cooper St.
