Howard Street Playground

imageThis is the Howard Street “playground” in 1920. This photo is found in the city’s annual report of that year. According to the report, in places where there were no actual playgrounds, the city would close the street for a few hours in the early evening when it was still light and let the kids play in the street. In 1920 this was done on Howard and Charles Streets.
