Terrace Avenue

TERRACE AVENUE is in East Camden, lying east of South 36th Street and running south from Federal Street for two blocks to Highland Avenue where it crosses into Pennsauken Township and continues across US Route 130 to Browning Road.

Terrace did not exist until the mid-1920s when it and several other streets were developed and homes built by Camden realtor Leon Todd. These row homes are characterized by stucco exteriors, where most all other rowhomes in Camden had brick exteriors. 

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

First aid administered by an East Camden physician saved the life of a 2-year-old boy.

Frederick Smith, 2, of 27 Terrace avenue, while playing around his home Tuesday found some, tablets of a poisonous nature. He swallowed them before his mother, Mrs. Anna Smith, could take them from him.

The mother rushed to the office of Dr. Ralph Warwick, Thirty-second street and Federal Street, where Dr. Warwick administered first aid and then had the child removed to West Jersey Homeopathic Hospital.

Chief Deitz Dies at City Fire Scene

Second District Fire Chief W. Harry Deitz, 52, a 25-year veteran in the Camden Fire Department, collapsed and died Wednesday night.

Chief Deitz was directing operations at the home of Mrs. Bernice Fox, 41`, at 33 Terrace Avenue, where a fire was burning in the cellar. The chief, who was inside, told Fire Captain Thomas Winstanley he was in need of fresh air and walked outside.

There he spoke with Patrolman Douglas Tydeman about a car parked in front of a fire hydrant which had prevented hooking up a pumper. He collapsed and was placed in a police cart where he was given oxygen as he was rushed to Cooper Hospital. He was dead on arrival.

Coroner Creran ordered an autopsy today.

Chief Deitz was appointed to the fore department in 1937, and was made a captain in 1948 and district chief in 1955. Eligible for retirement since May, he planned to leave the department in January. He lived at 33 South 32nd Street.

Surviving are his wife, Florence; two daughters, Dorothy, a nurse at Cooper Hospital, and Mrs. Roberta Wagner of Camden; a son, William, at home; and his mother and stepfather, Mr. and Mrs. George Attison of Atlantic City.

At the fire, damage was confined to the basement. Mrs. Fox was on the second floor and her two children, Diane, 14, and Bert, 8, were on the first floor when the fire started. Bert ran upstairs and gave the alarm and Mrs. Fox called firemen.

Charged with stealing seven diamond rings valued at $4000, two men were discharged by Police Judge Lewis Liberman yesterday when the complaining witness failed to appear in court.

John Burke, 42, of 736 Berkley Street, and John Bryan, 31, of 3009 Mt. Ephraim avenue, were arrested on complaint of Mrs. Anna Ricco, of 40 Terrace avenue, who accused them of taking her jewelry during a party on February 18.

Both men denied the charges and when Detective Thomas Murphy testified he notified Mrs. Ricco several times to appear at the hearing, they were dismissed..
