School 57--Historic Postcard

School #57, also known as the George Washington Julian School, is actually the third school building for Irvington. The first two structures used to be located in the 200 block of South Audubon Road across the street from the Irving Circle Park. After two significant fires, leaders in the neighborhood chose to move the school to East Washington Street and Ritter Avenue across from the former Irvington Fire Station! Herbert Foltz designed the school in 1903. It is now on the National Register of Historic Places. This historic postcard was sent by "Maud" to "Miss Nannie Thom" of Massillion, Ohio (c/o Rev. Mathinson of South Lincoln Avenue) on April 28, 1910. She writes: Hello my dear and how are you? We are fine. Haven't seen any of those pictures floating out this way. Hope to hear from you soon. Good Bye. Maud
