Location:
Date:
1935-1945
Description:
the 1909 Mueller map identifies the church and surrounding complex as the Convent of the Holy Child Jesus. The other building is the Sharon Hill School. Calcon Hook Road winds through the upper left. The entire site is now (2020) occupied by Academy Park High School and Sharon Hill Elementary School. The original school was demolished, and only one building of the convent complex remains. The Academy Park stop on what is now SEPTA's Wilmington Line shows up as a simple shed on the inbound side of the tracks. Thanks to Ted Xaras and Chuck Denlinger for identifying the location of this photograph.
