This photo was taken on the steps of the old Sacred Heart Nursing School which is now owned by the accounting firm of Saltmarsh, Cleveland and Gunn.  That is about all for this one … not sure the date or any of the ladies in the photograph.  As usual, all comments are welcomed and appreciated.  Thanks for looking …
