Description

Cherry St. - Asphalt Paving Project. Photo dated June 29, 1946. This view of Cherry Street taken from the intersection of St. Paul Street shows the new stone-filled-sheet asphalt hot plant mix pavement in front of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception Catholic church (97 Cherry Street) only a few days after its completion. This pavement was constructed approximately 2 inches in thickness over the old pavement as a base. The gutters were first built up to maintain a uniform depth of 6 inch curb face. Left side building is 35 St. Paul (three story wood frame with brick veneer)

Genre(s): photographs, black-and-white photographs

This is a view looking west on Cherry Street at the intersection with St. Paul Street which runs north/south. The church, The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, is on the right. This church fell to arson fire in the early 1970s, but the street had already been demolished for urban renewal in the 1960s. This church and the Episcopal Church of St. Paul down a block on St. Paul Street both fell to arson fire in the urban renewal zone that time frame.
