I love history and especially old architecture. If I had a deep enough pocket book, I would save and restore every old house I ever found!
I was surfing a little online tonight and found these fun photos of downtown Salt Lake City. Then I realized, HEY...I lived here - in that very spot!
South Temple in 1909
South Temple today - Brigham Apartments
South Temple 1909 with the Newhouse mansion
Same view today.
I loved living here when I was a single girl going to the University of Utah. I had a fantastic one bedroom apartment, no roommates and life was good.
(Sometimes I tell Dan I wish I could go live there again for a few days at a time, kids come with a lot of messes and clutter I never had then!)
It seems like downtown is treated like a big playground for building and re-building. As much as I loved that apartment it makes me so sad to see those amazing old homes that could have still been there today had someone stood up for restoring and saving them!
