Camden, NJ


LOIS AVENUE lies for the most part in Camden's Cramer Hill section. The 1947 Camden City Directory states that Lois Avenue runs west from Howell Street to Lemuel Avenue, this would be on the East Camden side of the railroad yard. In Cramer Hill Lois Avenue runs from Cleveland Avenue west across Hayes Avenue, River Road, and Harrison Avenue until it ends at the Delaware River, one bloc east of North 3oth Street. Lois Avenue is named for Lois Cramer, youngest daughter of Alfred Cramer, the real estate developer responsible for the development of much of Cramer Hill and East Camden.

Do you have an Lois Avenue memory or picture. Let me know by e-mail so it can be included here.

Joseph Bittner, 28, of 892 Lois Avenue, yesterday decided to burn the old grass and weeds growing near his home.

So he obtained a can of gasoline, poured it upon the accumulated trash and weeds and pffffft.

He was treated at West Jersey Homeopathic Hospital for burns of the right hand and forearm.

....... I grew up in Cramer Hill at 1027 Lois Avenue . I remember those good old days with fond memories.  How we would pretend as if we were not poor, just to find out latter that all the neighbors were doing the same.

        I no longer live in Camden (though proud of it).  The great education given me from “H. C. Sharp”, “Veterans Memorial” and “Camden County Vocational and Technical High School ”, was all I needed to become a successful citizen, with a family I can afford to give a better (easier) life to. But I will always have a question in my heart.  Can they ever know how hard it was to make a dollar as a kid, pulling a red wagon across the 2 7 th Street black iron bridge to Frank's Junk yard?  Yeah boy, ….. I spent that dollar very slowly!  Hahahahaaa

Girl and Father Sue Shipbuilding Official and Driver of Auto

Damages of $60,000 are asked by a Camden girl and her father for injuries suffered by the girl when an automobile struck her.

In a suit filed in state Supreme Court by Samuel T. French, Camden attorney, Miss Doris Sauer, 17, of 1114 Lois Avenue, seeks $50,000 and her father, Frederick R., asks $10,000 for medical expenses and loss of his daughter's services. Defendants in the action are LeRoy Robinson, 427 Washington Avenue, Haddonfield, vice president of Mathis Shipbuilding Company, and Robert W. Saeger, 336 Cooper Street . Saeger, it is charged, drove the car owned by Robinson at the time of the accident.

Miss Sauer was one of a number of girls crossing Admiral Wilson Boulevard at Memorial avenue shortly before midnight January 12 last. One of the girls, Edith Gilbert, 16, of 216 Fillmore street, Riverside, later succumbed to her injuries.

French avers the car operated by Saeger was going north on the boulevard at the time of the accident. One machine, proceeding in the same direction, had stopped to let the girls se get across and as they neared the curb, it is alleged, Saeger drove his vehicle past the standing car on the right, knocking down several of the girls. 

Miss Sauer, according to the bill of complaint, suffered a compound fracture of the right leg and skull in addition to other body injuries. She was unconscious in the hospital for 10 days and during that time her life was despaired of, French charged. 

It is further alleged Saeger was operating his car at a high rte of speed and was negligent in failing to stop when he saw pedestrians crossing the boulevard.
