Spotted on Ebay, a photo post card of students at St. Patrick's school in Galion; the card was mailed in 1909. St. Patrick's parish existed from 1871 until 1953 -- it was the English speaking parish formed from then-German speaking St. Joseph's. If you click HERE, you can see the back of the post card and the message from a sister who apparently taught there. The building above matches up with an additional postcard:
Many thanks to David and Judy for permission to use the photo. Check out their many post cards HERE -- if you search their store for "Ohio Church", you can see many more.
