Mayor Robert S. Maestri Photographs
Photo 34

WPA Project Tour, July 11, 1938
The photograph was taken in the courtyard of Annunciation High School, Marais and Spain Streets. The nuns are unidentified, but Mayor Maestri's sister was a member of the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament at this location, and the Mayor was a frequent visitor. The site where the two photographs were taken now houses the "Annunciation Inn," an assisted living facility for low-income senior citizens.
