There was another, important use of candles back in the 50s and 60s and before, something a play director had to explain to me once so I could understand a reference I was making as the lead role in Peter Schaffer's play Black Comedy: They were the household stand-in for sex toys before commercially-made sex toys became readily available. Apparently, it wasn't unusual for a woman in those decades to have a favorite candle tucked away in her nightstand or lingerie drawer.

scheckydamon I did for many years. Now I'm off in the western suburbs. You're right, though: You become a lot more worldly living in the center of a major city. Day to day life was a lot more interesting back then.

squrlz4ever I used to live across the river. You know, the jungle called Camden. Cramer Hill to be exact. The hole in the hole. Worked out in Cherry Hill. Like Philly but being a NYC boy always felt small to me.

scheckydamon We lived in the same neck of the woods then! I lived in Pretzel Town and you resided in the Land of Campbell Soup.

Philly's always had a bit of a complex about being in the shadow of NYC, and NYC's proximity has kept Philly from getting some of the recognition it deserves. The Philly restaurant scene, in particular, is first-rate--as good or better than New York's, in my opinion, and at a more reasonable price.

squrlz4ever Worked at the soup barn for a little while on the dock. We started unloading boxes labeled Australia and Meat. That’s when I gave up on their soup. 1974.
