    My Mother @15 and her Siblings @ 16 and 17 teenagers in the 1940’s, dressed up to look adult and went to the Showbar to see what it was like inside. They got as far as the door – were carded for I.D. and sent back to the street. They never got to see what this place was like during its heydays. Later on… this area turned into skidrow and was a low level dive for drunkards, pimps and whores. Finally- the building began to fall apart, leaning precariously towards the street…so they condemned it and tore the eye-sore down. Today -A New Trendy Building has built on this site. The whole downtown of Grand Rapids is alive with re-newal and breathtaking beautiful new buildings everywhere.
