Aren’t archaeology and “history” fascinating?
I don’t see how the identity of the owners is going to remain secret for long, though, as property tax assessments are part of the public record. Keep an eye out for some interesting revelations about Grammie and Gramps in the coming months. From Joe Arnold of WHAS11:
LOUISVILLE, Ky (WHAS11) — The mystery of an underground sadomasochism club continued to unravel on Tuesday after WHAS11 News aired images of what work crews discovered during Whiskey Row stabilization efforts.
Judging by the state of decay in the collapsing buildings, demolition crews had estimated the club dated to the 1970’s, but e-mails and posts to WHAS11’s Facebook and Twitter accounts reflect a more recent sadistic history.
A former founding member told WHAS11 that LATEX, short for Louisville Area Trust EXchange, was in operation in the mid to late 1990’s with close to 1,000 dues paying members.
“A group of about eight of us decided to form an organization to promote and teach people about safe ways to practice sadomasochism,” the man explained, agreeing to share the information with the condition that WHAS11 withhold his name. “There were a few professional dominatrixes, a few that were in committed B-D-S-M relationships, some gay, some straight.”
