165 N. Utah St., the former Russian quarter, via Google Earth.
|Dec. 12, 1909: Health inspectors checking the Russian quarter find violations of the law requiring that people sleep in rooms with at least 500 cubic feet of air per person. I’m not sure how officials derived this figure or how it was calculated, but even so, these places sound cramped. Maybe a little digging will turn up more information. |
