Kinloch, Part 4

In an attempt to add population to the city of Kinloch, many apartment buildings were built in the 1960’s and 70’s.

Most of these buildings now are unfortunately abandoned; some were snatched up by the airport, such as these burned out hulls in the center of town, while some seem to have been abandoned gradually.

I like these apartments; something about their 1980’s Post-Modern look reminds me of my childhood.

Reutilization of these properties could be a key to improving Kinloch’s future prospects.

  1. When I was a child in the 1960's (we lived in Normandy) the then mayor of Kinloch, who was a jazz aficionado, would visit the clubs where my dad was playing (piano) and then sometimes come to the house afterwards for a drink or jam session. (At 2AM!) I remember he was a large black man who smoked cigars and wore a bowler hat.

  2. I loved Kinloch so much. It’s where I lived half my life. I hope hope life is breathed back into it. I grew up at 5696 Jones Apt D in the 80’s. 💙
