TitleThe Unplanned Glory of Wornall Road
Extended TitleQuaint it ain't, but the hum of commercial activity in Waldo should prove instructive for city planners and their good intentions.
AbstractColumn spotlights the "eclectic" and "bustling" Waldo business district along south Wornall Road, described by the author as an "urban planner's vision of hell." Some of the long-time Waldo businesses mentioned include Bobby Baker's Lounge, the Waldo Grain Company, Explorer's Percussion, and Larry's Wholesale Tire Warehouse.
