Thank you Terry Cryer. I have been trying to get a picture of St. Patrick's for years but nobody seemed to have one. Times were tight in the 30's so I suppose not too many people had cameras.

This picture is priceless!! First of all, can you imagine the boy on his knees being allowed to play like that these days. No way! Secondly, I'd love to know just what devilment Terry and the other two are hatching up. I can almost hear the wheels grinding. I think the old graveyard must be where the photographer is standing.
