Hi. Try this.
If you can't find the one that you are looking for, then contact one near
it. I lived in Mt Airy, and the one in G-town is on the 6600 block of Chew
Avenue and Chew and Germantown ran parrallel. Which means that this must
have been down in North Philly or below... but not in Center City.
Maybe they can help as well.
