Back in the 20's

Back in the day, there was a (very) active brothel house in our neighborhood.  It is now a historical site that sometimes is used for social functions.

Each year, a few families from Huff host a 1920's Poker Party there to raise money for the school. 

Since it was right down the street, we rode over. 

 Had a hard time riding in high heels, so I hitched a ride with Steve.

  Here we are posing. 
Reminds me of the Great America poses. 


This is the phone that they used to "call" the girls to get ready.  We also got to see the "Look-Out" window in the house and the secret rooms and passageways that they used to hide the women. 


Beautiful, full moon that night. 

We also got to see the "Look-Out" window in the house and the secret rooms and passageways that they used to hide the women when there was a police raid.


 It is a fun night to get a lot of people together from the neighborhood. 



Playing Poker.
