Criticism of Philadelphia Grows Over Bombing of Radicals' Home
The attempts of the city government to rebuild Osage Avenue
Residents affected by the fire raised criticisms of the city's attempts to rebuild. Not only were they concerned that the new homes would not be up to standard, but also that they hadn't received much of the money raised by relief agencies. Clifford Bond, a spokesman for the displaced Osage Avenue residents, said, "It was war and anytime you have a war you have psychological problems. People are going to work and finding they can't concentrate." The city assured residents that the new houses would be up to code. Time would tell otherwise.
