730 Franklin

This was the residence of Joyce and Steve from 1949-51. They lived with the Weathers' family. At that time Joyce was employed by the Oberfelder company which promoted concerts in Denver from the 30's into the 50's.

Story is that on the landing, just beyond where the girl in this photo is standing, Steve went over backwards and hit his head. Joyce recalls it to this day. "I thought I killed you".

Photo taken June 2015 during Sandi, Steve and Joyce visit to Denver.

We didn't get to the back yard, which is too bad, because Mom and I could have recreated the following photos with a trip to the 'dime store' for swim suits and a plastic pool:

or if we had come in winter......

but since it was summer, we can just imagine what it was like for Mom as a single mother, having fun in the backyard at 730 Franklin:
