The Jewish Quarter of Philadephia: A History and Guide 1881 to 1930 by Harry D. Boonin.
The never-before told story of the Eastern European Jews who settled around South Street and in the area of Society Hill and Queen Village, an area known to the Jews as "the Jewish Quarter." The book is both a history of the confined area and a street-by-street guide. The Jewish quarter covered from Spruce Street in the north to Christian Street in the south, and from 2nd Street on the east to 6th Street on the west.
The book contains approximately 100 photographs, many never published before, and listings of all the halls in the area, the Yiddish theatres, the synagogues, rabbis, and much, much more. It also contains six pages from atlases of Philadelphia showing most of the properties in the area.
