Midtown Kansas City

After separating from Addie in early 1927, Charles Sr. quit his job on the railroad and went to work as a janitor in an apartment building at 114–116 36th Street in midtown Kansas City, Missouri. That summer, Addie and Charles Sr. reconciled and moved to a spacious apartment in a brick fourplex at 3527 Wyandotte, located in the heart of a predominately white middle-class neighborhood.
