A proposal by a Chamber of Commerce committee in March 1954 to demolish these houses on Toner Street was made to the Board of City Commissioners as part of a project to replace substandard housing with single-family homes. The committee proposed razing more than two acres of such houses in the Toner, Kenton, Fifth and Sixth street areas. Herald-Leader Archive Photo
