You can see what the Immaculate Conception Catholic Parish on Darby Street looked like back in 1908. The convent, long since gone, is seen to the right of the church.
DO YOU KNOW ANYTHING MORE ABOUT THIS EVENT?
If I am reading the photo right, the photgrapher was on "The Rock" facing North. You can see the Catholic Church in the top left which would mean that the street that you're looking at in the foreground is Grove Street and the open space between the two-floored building on the left and the white building on the right is where the library sits today. The next street north would be Highway 17 and I believe the flat-faced building is where Hub 17 is right now. There certainly were a lot more trees between the rock and the highway!
Members of the group identified some of the features. Please note that none of these identifications have been verified but we would love to know what you think!
This ongoing blog is a collection of articles and photos written by volunteers, staff and you, about the history of our region!
