Smith Home and Edith and Bills
These photos were provided by Donald Smith, who was raised in Aldham at a residence that no longer exists. Of particular interest to myself and my siblings are the photos of Donald's parents Edith and Bill Smith's restaurant and deli, which I'll always remember as "Edith and Bills". Perhaps other Township "old timers" remember this establishment. My brother and sisters and I will attest to the fact that the best hoagies in the entire world came from Edith and Bills.
Aldham, Charlestown Township 1940s and early 1950s
