The King of Skid Row
The King of Skid Row John Bacich and the Twilight Years of Old Minneapolis By Shiffer, James Eli Book - 2016

Read it in one sitting. Fascinating and sometimes sad. The author did a great job of explaining the geography of downtown Minneapolis where much of the book took place. It's interesting to see pictures of what was standing years ago and compare it to today. Hard to imagine bars and flop houses stood where Whole Foods and fancy condos are today.

Please make sure to read the forward written about the last day ceremony at the old Star Tribune building and the address by writer Sid Hartman. So Sid!
