P1010569Mannino's Banana Warehouse

22 Park Place, rear facing Chestnut Street -- Listed as Cosmo Mannino (fruit) in 1970 telephone directory.

The 1928 Sanborn map, with 1947 corrections, show this structure as a Motor Freight Station. The locals, Dan Cupper and Robert Johnson, recall it being a produce warehouse (Mannino's Banana Warehouse) in the 1950's and served by reefers.

The building remains today as an under 21 club (2016 aerial image below).

Present in 1957 Penn Pilot aerial photo. Part of the tannery building is still present behind Manino's.

Based on telephone directories, the banana business was moved elsewhere prior to 1970.

Per Mary Ann Stauffer (FaceBook), there were six apartments upstairs. She lived there for a time in the 1980s.

On FaceBook, I connected with Frannie Mannino Corse and John Mannino. Franny wrote "My family lived there and worked there (my Uncle Sam, my Uncle Bobby, my dad Angelo, my brother Johnny). The apartments upstairs were really nice. I remember as a kid putting coins on those railroad tracks and picking them up after the train flattened them! Good times and good memories! "

The garage in the rear was not part of the original building. The loading dock was added also. I believe there was a rail siding that came along side the overhead door on the loading dock."
