The Lawrence We Remember Redux
Four and a half years ago I posted about Lawrence, The Way We Remember it. It and another similar post were very popular and I've avoided revisiting the subject. Until now.
My thought is to revisit East 23rd St., before the new K-10 was built. I invite you to submit recollections, photos, or links to relevant information.
In the future, we might visit our memories of other areas in (and maybe even around) Lawrence.
I mentioned the AquaForum, which was initially on East 23rd. I'm sure when all the work was being done rebuilding E. 23rd, the business suffered. I believe it moved, for a while, to somewhere near where Pet World is now. I moved away in 1976 and think it was still in business. When I returned around 1980, I'm not so sure.
The old gentleman who ran it (although he might not have been much older than I am now), still sticks vaguely in my memory.
Does anyone else have recollections of him and his shop? Or anything on E. 23rd around that time? Please post your recollections below, or if you prefer, you can contact me with the information and I'll make sure it's visible.
