Description:

Vivian Carlson has lived in Boulder, in the Interurban subdivision , since 1947. In this interview she describes the Boulder of the late 1940s, including the location of roads and descriptions of stores at that time. She tells about the building of the Interurban subdivision, which, unlike other subdivisions of the mid-twentieth century, was built by a number of different developers in a wide variety of architectural styles. She describes changes in the subdivision, including its move away from families with young children toward more renter-occupied housing. She also describes the Vet Village (Vetsville) housing of central Boulder in the post-WWII years.
This interview is part of a series about post-WWII subdivisions in Boulder.
