Covington, Ky. July 24. "Charles Leonard, the young gymnast who attempted to walk a span wire that
crosses the street at Madison Avenue and 18th street, will recover. The boy fell on his head a distance
of 20 feet on the asphalt street." from the Owenton News-Herald, July 27, 1905

Twentieth & Madison,
Car Barns on left
Corner of Madison and 20th,
 Covington, 1909

Twentieth Street was the end of the line for streetcars at the time these pictures were taken, which is why a small business district developed at this location.  The car barns were built in 1901, out of a similar facility that had been abandoned in Newport.

 

Madison Avenue

See the sign in the upper left that says “Taxi Stand?” Evidently, in this photo from 1956, at Madison and 7th, sewer workers have cleaned those coke bottles out of the sewer that the idle taxi drives had conveniently used as a dumping ground for their empties.
