That must be Stewart School on the right. I spent 5 years there in the early to mid 40's. Mary Sullivan was the principal. Miss Dennison was a fourth grade teacher. Her brother was the Monsignor at St. Mary's and a long black limo would pick her up after school every day.

There were some great teachers there, like my 7th grade science teacher. Can't remember her name. But, sorry to say, there were more mediocre ones. Also, a number of old bats who certainly shouldn't have been teaching grammar school kids.
