This is extremely interesting and now I'll have to get my hands on Mr. Goodstein's book. Thank you for helping our wonderful history come alive.

Thanks for the kinds words, H! Denver Streets is currently out of print, but there might be a few used copies floating around. Phil is currently working on a series on the history of Denver Public Schools that looks great! Thanks for reading and commenting!

Such an important book for Denver research.

Seriously, it gets used so much in our department (it's one of the few titles we can justify having four copies of so that future generations can benefit from it, too). 

Very valuable source, this book.
Is there any mention of the naming/unnaming of Gene Amole Street (or Alleyor Lane or whatever)?
The Queen City Of The Plains needs to have a Gene Amole Street.
Why did this section of 14th st become obsolete so soon after the honors period following that wonderful human's passing?

Hi R.H. - We agree with your assessment of Denver treasure Gene Amole. It seems as though Gene Amole Way was consigned to the dustbin of history when the RMN Building was bulldozed to make way for the new County Jail. That said, it wouldn't hurt to name another street after that fine journalist. Thanks for reading and commenting!
