East End History Walk a Success!


Thanks to everyone who came out for my history walk of the East End this afternoon. I had a lot of fun. I hope you did to. Feedback and suggestions for improving the tour are always welcome.

For those interested in reading more about the shootout that took place on East Georgia near Jackson, please read Lani Russwurm's brilliantly researched piece called "What Frankie Said". You can find it by Googling the title as above, or you can go to My Links below, click on Past Tense, which is the title for Lani's Blog, and do a search of the title there as well. It is a fascinating read. 

CVA Photo 371-891 shows house on 400 block of East Pender circa 1901. Sadly, this house no longer stands.
