Trenton China an Old City landmark.

Tren­ton Chi­na was a fix­ture on this cor­ner as long as I have lived in Philadelphia.

I picked out Chi­na for restau­rants here; ven­tur­ing into the base­ment and wan­der the shelves and rows of stacked plates, bowls, and cups. Unbe­liev­able stacks of ramekins and stoneware. I remem­ber check­ing out the used equip­ment and talk­ing with Sam and Phil about the most recent equip­ment to come in the door.

I was sad to see them leave the neighborhood.

I hope that the new owner/developers will keep the won­der­ful paint­ing on the side of the build­ing it would be great for the neigh­bor­hood and soft­en the blow of their loss.
