The View From Fourth Street

Looking south towards St. Mary's from Fourth and Appleton Streets, circa 2005.

As I lived a block east, in the shadow of St. Mary's, it was, undoubtedly, the tallest object in my world.  It was defintely a landmark; it even appears on nautical navigational charts for the area as a point of reference, labeled as "spire."

  1. I lived several blocks north in the 600 block of 6th St. The train smells and noise still are in my memory.
