  1. My family lived at 21 Clymer St. in Philadelphia until I95 forced us to move. However, there was a property we owned at 25 Clymer St. The reason I am contacting you is that the 25 Clymer St. house was, from what I can remember, the only frame home in the surrounding neighborhood. As I think about the building, it may have been one of the oldest in what is now known as Queens Village. I am reaching out you in hopes of possibly obtaining any information if it still exists. I do remember that the ceilings were very low, indicating old construction. I hope you can find some information
