Last Summer I helped Jim and Cabanne Howard purchase a wonderful CWE home on Pershing. The home was owned by Karen Duffy and Charlie Struckhoff of Duff's fame. They were one of the original pioneers of the CWE revival and purchased the home in the 70's. I remember Karen and Charlie saying that they first lived in the house when it was a rooming house with a bunch of friends. Eventually they bought the place and replaced the friends with their children. They tellstories of living across from a "drying-out" house that was an old hotel across the street. It eventually was torn down and snazzy town homes were built. On the other corner of Pershing and Taylor there was a rooming house frequented by call girls. Things have gotten a lot tamer in the CWE....or at least until the Howards moved into the neighborhood!
