Can't see 2548 North Fairhill Street in 1940 census - nor any other number anywhere near that - only addresses in the 5000s and 6000s.

Many thanks Maddie & ArgyllGran I have details for Simon his wife and the sons but Joan just seems to elude me. I thought that the 1950 census might just be the place where I might find her.
Thank you for taking time to search for me.

Pennsylvania seems to be one of the states they haven't got to yet re the 1950 census.
