Once a stop along Saunders Road, as it meandered from young Omaha City to the old City of Florence, the intersection of 24th and Ames became a busy commercial hub in the suburban Saratoga neighborhood with streetcars, pedestrians, and taxis packing each corner. About 60 years ago, it all started to change, and today there is almost no evidence left of its success. Adam shares the story.
