1412 Fillmore

This was the residence of the Leonhardt family, Roy, Jo, Joyce and Larry while Joyce went to Jr High School (Gove Jr High). Circa 1942-44. Gove was between 13th and 14th on Albion, and was demolished in 2012 to make room for expansion of National Jewish Health Center.
They offered room and board for others, so Jo would have cooked. Roy worked at Gates Rubber Co.
Larry and Joyce slept in the basement.
The family moved from here to the farm in Broomfield when Roy started working the farm. The family that owned the Fillmore house also owned the ranch.

In 2015 we returned to this residence and took the photo above. In Joyce's photo collection we have a photo of her standing in the front yard. Here is that photo 'then and now':
