This post contains another blockbuster historic Maplewood image.
This is the final post of the Lillian Weber Herold collection and what a collection it is! The number of very fine images is impressive and there are still quite a few to view including the blockbuster promised earlier.
Here are the links if you would like to review Part One or Part Two of this series. For Part Three I have endeavored, once again, to put the images and information in chronological order where possible.
This next image is not the blockbuster I advertised but it almost is. Any images of Bartold’s Grove are treasures. Many must have been made but I have found so few.
OK. Let’s have drum roll, please. It is time to unveil what I consider to be another one of the rarest of the rare images of early Maplewood.
Keep in mind that to produce these small pieces of Maplewood History takes a team. I couldn’t do any of it without the cooperation of a great many of you folks who follow this site. I know I have said it before but I’ve been doing this for over a decade and there are more than 400 of these posts floating in the ether.
For this particular series, we have to thank Dan Fitzgerald of the Brentwood Historical Society for making me aware of the early images of two of our most important intersections Big Bend and Manchester and Big Bend and Flora. We also have to thank the descendants of Lillian Weber Herold who very generously let me copy much of their most precious family artifacts. Hats off to those folks.
The mask is off. The sun is out. See you at the pool.
