14: As you can see these are the La Veta Apartments from 1910. Don't you wonder who lived here?
15: The apartments have become a parking lot.! I wonder why they tore the apartments down.!!
16: This was the Dean Heart House on the corner of Welton and 20th streets. It was so big. I wonder how many children lived there?
