We were talking about St C one day, and, as usual, Larry was googling as we (I) talked...lol He found these images of St Cloud at the California Historical Society website...who knew?
The library I knew as a kid--St Cloud's Carnagie Library.
Barden Park, where the St Cloud Municipal Band played on summer evenings. I remember sitting in the car as a kid, in our PJs, and honking the horn after every song--wow, that was FUN!
The St Cloud Hospital waiting room, and yes, it was exactly that hushed and austere. I remember 'S'ter police' and itchy upholstery.
These two buildings faced each other across the street (Holy Angels school, above, and Holy Angels Church, below). Cathedral High School's South Building blocked most of this view when we went to CHS. The church, below, is now a very nice performing arts center, but with a shorter steeple. The original church was gutted by fire in 1933. It was rebuilt, but not to it's former elegance.
AND, here are a few St Cloud pics from a favorite site called Minnesota Reflections .
(Notice, below, that Immaculate Conception Church (the German Catholic church) originally faced north).
