If you blow up the bottom image, you can see the spires of Buena Memorial Presbyterian Church.

Thank you for posting these as sets. It really is thrilling to take a look at our neighborhood at its most glorious. Check out the homes that originally sat just to the north of St Mary of the Lake!

You can also just barely see a second home BEHIND the mansion that serves as the church's rectory. It's much smaller, and from an aerial photo, I was able to determine that it sat on the the parcel that the rectory's addition now covers.

Thanks, Buena Boy. I hope to have the rest converted to high res in another day or so.

These pictures are the next best thing to a time machine. We can take a "walk" up Sheridan and get a perfect time capsule of Uptown in 1936-7.
