Description Kathleen M. Babcock, a lifelong resident of the University Park area of Denver, Colorado, lists her numerous area addresses and describes her early University Park neighborhood as farmland with most residents keeping cattle, chickens, and horses. Babcock discusses local shops and businesses, area churches, and neighborhood activities for children, including a May Day Festival at the University of Denver, holiday parties, ice skating at a lighted rink in the winter, and visits on Saturdays to a gymnasium on University Avenue. Babcock also talks about the first streets to be paved in the neighborhood, her first ride in an automobile, and the local streetcar route, which later became the bus route from University Park to downtown Denver.
