About

Ruth's Cafe was once here. According to an article in tomorrow's Philadelphia Inquirer, starting at Travel p. N. 1, "In the 98 years since [Babe] Ruth bought the building for his father, George Sr., walls have been knocked down, and the tin ceiling has been removed and a dancer's pole installed." And, "Babe Ruth bought his father a tavern with his 1915 World Series check [allegedly]." The current owner has Ruth memorabilia on display. Also, "On Aug. 24, 1918, there was an altercation out front. Ruth's father was involved and fell or was knocked down and hit his head. He died of the injuries."
