Cherokee Street, 1997-2002

Monday, May 14, 2012

Continuing our trip down memory lane, here are some old photos from our collection of Cherokee Street in the late '90s-early 2000s.  These were back in the days when Randy and I, along with some high school buddies, ventured onto big bad Cherokee Street not for tacos or art openings, but bongs and rolling papers!  It was a mere 20-minute car ride from Creve Coeur where we lived, but a world away.  We'll always remember our Friday afternoon visits to T-Shirt Headquarters, Spectrum's and Ngomsom's (R.I.P).  Those crazy high school adventures formed our earliest impressions of the gritty street that STyLehouse calls home today. (All photos taken by Jeff and Randy Vines)

Taqueria Azeteca and El Chico Bakery!

Carniceria Latino Americana (check out the cool picture in the second floor corner window)

Empire Sandwich Shop, demolished in 2006 after a fire.  Such a loss for the district.

Loitering by the No Loitering sign - ha!  Empire Sandwich Shop in the background.  

Proper Shoe Store before the red sign was removed, and 2720 Cherokee sporting an old marquee overhang.

Many many many more '90s-early 2000s pics from all over the city to come!

In the meantime, check out our previous posts:'90searly_2000s!/

With havin so much written content do you ever run
into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has
a lot of unique content I've either created myself or outsourced but it
seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement.
Do you know any ways to help reduce content from being ripped
off? I'd really appreciate it.

Some protein shakes are also protein shakes for women available in
the market. Remember that having more protein will not help you
in reducing weight naturally.

Yet there is the feeling of uncertainty about its benefits.

Next run a wire on the good airport for the solar cell with
a diode, which could avoid power by seeping out and about with the
battery. So, you would be able to recover more than the cost of the system installation at the
time of selling the home.

What's up to all, as I am actually keen of reading this website's post

I think that what you said was actually very reasonable.
But, what about this? suppose you composed a catchier
title? I am not suggesting your content isn't good, however what if you added a
headline to possibly grab folk's attention? I mean Cherokee Street, 1997-2002 is
kinda boring. You could glance at Yahoo's home page and see how they write
article titles to get people to click. You might try adding a video or
a picture or two to grab readers interested about everything've written. In my
opinion, it would bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
