Martin Tanahey: World War I Draft Card

This must have been the son of the  park's namesake. He was born in 1899 and lived at 177 Cherry Street in 1918. He worked as a cigar checker, I think, at Pier 13. Maybe it had to do with custom's inspection. Our own Joe Bruno remembers him and said he was a real nice guy. If I recall the story Joe might have said he worked at the Journal American.
