Interesting Old Picture
Here's an interesting old picture that I received from one of our neighbors, Bette McDevitt. She had received the photo from her cousin. It shows Lockhart Street up to our Grand Hall (then St. Mary's Church) from the East, around Madison Avenue. Our Grand Hall is the church with the Bavarian onion domes, which were subsequently removed. The photo looks to be from the 1930's or so. If you were to look at this view now, all of the buildings would have been demolished up to our Grand Hall, and all you would see would be ribbons of highway. We have a shot from a similar angle in our blog archives, if you look under the tab "Priory History."
