Back in the 1980s, I went to art school, and I along with all of the other illustration majors were required to take a course in photography. We had to shoot the photos as well as process the negatives and make the prints. I don’t recall what the particulars of the class assignments were although I can tell from looking at the negatives which were the assignments and which ones were shot just to finish off a roll. The shots to finish the roll are a lot more interesting.
While my fellow students mostly resided and shot their photographs in Philadelphia, I lived and did most of my shooting in and around Westville, NJ. This is another shot of another hang-out or watering hole known by the regal name of King Richard’s Tavern.
Got my lustrous start at King Richards…….could not have had more fun in a million years.
Thanks for the comments!
There’s a defunct King Richard’s on Lancaster Ave. in west Philly too. I always liked the sign on the ground floor tappie in a Chinatown flophouse (now refurbished and gentrified): “Double shot and beer half-price before 11 a.m.”
Breakfast of champions.
Great blast from the past! My Mom worked there for years and my Uncle is Richard! The name Chuck Bengle sounds very familiar to me
Formerly the “Tower Bar” a regular stop for my Father…
I wish I had more photos of these places.
