167-169 Regent StreetThis site originally housed two buildings used as brothels on Salt Lake City's busy Commercial Street during the late 1800's and early 1900's. Commercial Street was created in 1871, one of the first streets to be cut through Salt Lake City's large city blocks. Commercial Street originally contained legitimate businesses but by the 1880's the "Salt Lake Tribune" referred to the street as "a resort of gamblers and fast women" and, according to the "Deseret News," the occupants of Commercial Street were "the demi-monde, the male parasite, the dope fiend, the gambler and the begger."
