Dining & Dancing at the Village Barn, 1945

An extinct 8th Street club...old timer Philly DiCiccio tells me this was a subterranean club located on 8th between MacDougal and 6th Avenue...

Where ever did you find this treasure, KM? Reminds me of my parents' old photos.

Reminds me of a photo taken at someone's 50th wedding anniversary (back in the 40s)that my aunt showed me not long ago ...

Wow, when settling my father estate, I found a photo of him and three of his friends at the Village Barn, March, 1950. Further, knowing that Race matters in the US, my Dad is an African-American Man.

My father owned Dalpe Covered Wire Co. at 471 W. Broadway in 1945. He moved to Pine Bush, NY and turned our barn into restaurant in 1949. Called it Dalpe's Village Barn. I HAVE PHOTO. Always wondered why he named it Village Barn. Thanks to this website, now I know. Eileen Dalpe
