CAMDEN, NEW JERSEY
CHARLES KRATTENMAKER'S SALOON
942-944 Federal Street
Charles Krattenmaker had purchased a saloon at 1138 Federal in 1888. By 1890 he was in business at 942-944 Federal Street, where he remained through at least 1913. Irish born James McAninley paid $2700 for this bar from Charles Krattenmaker late in 1907. Krattenmaker apparently spent McAninley's purchase price and then defaulted on completing the sale. The affair went to court in January of 1913. As of this writing (May 2004) this author does not know the outcome of this litigation. By 1918 Henrietta Storch was operating the business.
There was no bar located at this address by 1947. The building had been razed by the 1970s.
James McAninley later owned a bar at 940 North 2nd Street, the corner of North 2nd and Erie Streets.
