From the Publisher:

A guided tour of Philadelphia's quintessential neighborhood from the days of Thomas Jefferson to the night Palumbo's burned

From the Back Cover:

From mayors and mummers to tap dancers and gamblers, South Philly has it all. This quintessential Philadelphia neighborhood boasts a complicated history of ethnic strife alongside community solidarity and, for good measure, some of the best bakeries in town. Among its many famous people, South Philadelphia claims Marian Anderson, Frankie Avalon, Mayor Frank Rizzo, Temple Owl's coach John Chaney, Larry Fine of the Three Stooges, and "Loving" soap opera actress Lisa Peluso. For South Philadelphians, whether they stay or leave, the neighborhood is always special. They are always happy to give opinions, and in this book they talk about their favorite subjects to award winning journalist Murray Dubin, who also called South Philly home. Murray Dubin will take you on a residents' tour of the ultimate city neighborhood. Explore hundreds of years of neighborhood history, from Thomas Jefferson's stay in 1793 to the burning of Palumbo's in 1994. Whether you're a South Philadelphian, or just want to understand the South Philly phenomenon, this book is a must.
