Dallas History Items: St. Ann's School, 1940
St. Ann Parochial School was constructed in 1927. Managed by the Sisters of Charity, it was a valuable resource for Dallas' Latino community, where, where thousands of children began their education.
This photograph is one of a series made by the Dallas Street Department in 1940-1941 during the widening of Turney Avenue (today's Harry Hines Boulevard). Although the photographer was concerned with making images of streets, curbs, and drainage ditches, his photographs today are a valuable record of the Little Mexico neighborhood.
