Carl Sandburg - Real Estate News

ARMOUR AVENUE was the name of this street and door signs on empty houses read “The Silver Dollar,” “Swede
Annie” and the Christian names of madams such as “Myrtle” and “Jenny.”
Scrap iron, rags and bottles fill the front rooms hither and yon and signs in Yiddish say Abe Kaplan & Co. are running
junk shops in whore houses of former times.
The segregated district, the Tenderloin, is here no more; the red-lights are gone; the ring of shovels handling scrap iron
replaces the banging of pianos and the bawling songs of pimps.Chicago, 1915.
