About me

Introduction Phila PA Chronicles is a walk down memory lane to revisit the people, landmarks and happenings in the Delaware Valley during the 20th century. Its name was inspired by the pieces of hand-addressed mail that Philadelphia residents would receive from senders who didn’t want to be bothered with writing out the city’s lengthy name. Phila PA Chronicles covers the region, not just the city. All four of Philadelphia’s suburban counties and South Jersey are fair game. Phila PA Chronicles was created by Joanne McHugh, owner of Personal Chronicles, a company dedicated to helping ordinary people save their life stories.
