Photo: Bustling downtown, 1919

Images from another time

Posted: Tuesday, June 24, 2003

This photograph was taken in 1919 and made into a postcard, showing what is now Franklin Street in downtown Juneau. During this time, speak-easies and cigar stores lined Lower Front Street, now South Franklin. Prostitutes displayed themselves in windows overlooking the street because they were required to be off the street by 4 p.m. Juneau's red-light district, said to be Alaska's largest and longest running, operated until 1954.
