The video below was produced back in 2001 when there was a great deal of very positive activity on Frankford Avenue. The five people who were interviewed for their recollections of Frankford give first person accounts of things we can now only read about. It is only about 20 minutes long but well worth seeing again. Thanks to Joe Menkevich for digging up the old VHS tape.

100 years ago, the United States was at war. It became official on April 6th of 1917 and in June of that year, young men all over America and Frankford, began registering for the draft. The war in Europe had been going on since 1914 and was at a stalemate. It would take the entry of the United States to bring it to an end.
