Now known as Charley's Place, the building at 1445 Haddon Avenue has a history as a bar that goes back before World War I. The bar was, in those days, called Emil Muckensturm's Saloon. Emil Muckensturm died in 1925.
When Prohibition was repealed, the bar opened back up. The bar was initially operated by Emil Muckensturm's wife Ruth. Her grand-daughter Dorothy and her husband, Alfred Chapman, operated it through the late 1970s. In these times the bar was known as Chapman's Cafe. The bar has been known as Charley's Place since the 1990s.
