Richmond and Peter/Then

These houses, in what is now known as the Entertainment District, shown in 1944 are ready for demolition.

A year later they’ve been replaced by this building which still stands.

Up until the late 1980’s there was nothing entertaining at all about this area which was all business. It was practically a ghost town on the weekends. The first “club” that I remember was ┬ácalled “The Twilight Zone” located a little further east on Richmond.
