Overview

Stewart recalls moving to Denver, her father's grocery store, the snow storm in 1913, the streetcars in the city, the celebrations at the end of World War I, the reenactment of the sinking of the Titanic at Sloans Lake, walking to the theater, and watching the tightrope walker Ivy Baldwin.
