Andy shot this video while we we enjoying our time in Ketchikan, AK on the Alaskan cruise we took in June. Here, he shows the Creek flowing under Creek Street and we have fun discussing the bawdy history of Dolly’s.
Andy: Welcome, everyone. This is Creek Street. This used to be all brothels. And… there were, like, 34 brothels along the creek here. And… this is in downtown Ketchikan, and that was pretty much the way it was until, I think they said, 1934. We do have a light rain falling right now, but in general, it’s just a wonderful day in the neighborhood. And there’s my wonderful husband…
(The next section of dialogue spoken with a stuffy English accent)
Andy: …in front of Dolly’s. Dolly’s used to be what?
Daniel: Well, Miss Dolly was the proprietress of a house of sporting women.
Andy: Does that mean they liked to play volleyball?
Daniel: It means they liked to play the sort of sports that men like to play, if you catch my drift.
Andy: Like the skin flute?
(Back to regular American accent)
Daniel: Something like that.
Andy: (English accent again) Oh, paw-paw, what do you think? Dolly’s is quite interesting!
