Our Father and Mother opened Lang’s Bakery, March 1,1939 at 2752 Federal Street in East Camden, and stayed in business there until June 1970. For many years we supplied Camden Catholic High School in Camden with our cream and jelly donuts, especially during Lent. Cramer School students ate their lunches in the store. After Sunday Mass our store was always always crowded with people from St Joseph’s and other nearby churches. I attended Cramer and Woodrow Wilson High as did my brothers Hans (WWHS ’50) and Danny (WWHS ’60) and my wife Hilda Larmour Lang (WWHS ’52).
Erlton Italian Bakery
A true Camden NJ treasure, and a tradition for many throughout South Jersey – both are accurate descriptions of Erlton Italian Bakery, Marlton Avenue and Berkeley Street in East Camden. The business, founded in the mid-1950s, has been a Camden fixture since 1966. East Camden residents have been savoring the aroma of the fresh bread baking in the family owned and operated bakery for decades.
The Naden Store
Mary Naden and her family operated a furniture and home furnishings business on Kaighn Avenue at Clover Street in Camden NJ for the better part of five decades. One son, Jacob Naden, also operated a second shop in East Camden on Federal Street at 24th Street in 1930s and 1940s. Interestingly, the Camden Courier-Post reported on February 10, 1936 that he acquired the “northwest corner Twenty-fourth and Federal Streets, north side Federal Street, 20 feet west Twenty-fourth Street;” from “Velma E. Duncan et als” for only $1.
