High and ValleyPaul Ashton identified this as, "the intersection of Valley and High with the steeple of the First Congregational church in the background (the one that blew down in the 1938 hurricane). It must have been shot from the Normal School building." To the left of the Congregational Church's steeple, one can make out one of St. Mary's steeples (they were modified in about 1958) and, to the left of that, very faintly, St. Joseph's pre-hurricane steeple.
