Thread Name: Tune Req: Larimer Street (Utah Phillips)
Subject: RE: Tune Req: They're Runnin' the Bums Out of Town
The minute I saw Larimer Street, Denver came to mind. They started to rebuild in that part of downtown after WW2. Denver lost most of its interesting late 19th c. areas to the rebuilders.
My grandfather used to take me to the Larimer St. area when he was searching for old books; a lot of the used goods places were there.
When I went to Denver as a grown-up many years later, the downtown areas I knew were all office towers, etc.
