When I was a child Penndel Borough was called South Langhorne (changed in 1911 to Penndel). We would walk from Langhorne Borough down the hill through Langhorne Manor to the movie theater. US Route 1 was called the "Super Highway". Flannery's was a restaurant and bar with a ladies entrance. Flannery's owned first by Jim Flannery's parents and then he took over and eventually was the home of "The Airplane" restaurant. You could go up into the airplane and have a drink. On the opening of The Airplane there was a tragic air balloon fatal accident.

HIstory of Flannery's

Tomato Pie was purchased at Spat's. Palmer's lumber yard was adjacent to the rail road tracks currently the home of a strip mall. The food store is now a carpet store and the building across from the carpets was the pharmacy with a dance studio on the 2nd floor.

With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan - to do all which may achieve a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.
