Uncategorized Philadelphia History Channel September 20, 2012 | by Hidden City Staff 5 Comments: Brian Furey says: May 20, 2016 at 4:09 pm I was born in West Philadelphia in 1949. Grew up in South Jersey (Hadonfield). Lived in Center City in the mid ’70’s. Always have identified myself as a Philadelphian. This documentary was an excellent reminder of what life was like in the latter half of the 20th century. Challenging times. Wonderful, resilient, proud people!

I am still looking through every website I can find to contact old school friends who went to Houston Jr. high school, or Leeds. Is there anyone out there who could help me?

I’ve been looking for photographs of it, but can’t find any. She remembers so much about her beloved Center City. It would bring her great joy to see some photos. Can anyone help me find them? Thank you.
