Along with wondering what was so special about Aunt Becky’s Coffee Pots, I was curious about what now stood at the 148 North Second Street address. The Philadelphia Scoop Company is long gone (along with Aunt Becky’s Coffee Pots), but the site has carried on the theme as home to the Swift Food Equipment Company. As I walked to the spot today, a car out front was being loaded with party supply materials. And I’ll bet you can still buy scoops there!
