Rundown housing along an alley that was part of Kenton Street, showing an area that was part of the city’s slum clearance project in March 1954. That alley remains, still named Kenton Street, running north from West Fifth Street but ending before West Sixth. A wider section of Kenton Street runs south to West Fourth Street.
