History Buffs: Maps Showing SBHS Campus in 1893 and 1911

This is for the history buffs in the audience. Here is a screen shot of a map of New London from 1893. In the upper center, you can see the "Williams Memorial Institute" on Broad Street, which later became the St. Bernard's campus. You can also see why Bank Street got its name: it WAS the riverbank! The Miner and Alexander Lumberyard site (corner of Hamilton and Howard Sts at bottom of map) was actually underwater at that time! And the Shaw's Cove office building complex? That is nearly smack in the middle of Shaw's Cove! The second map dates from 1911, and you can clearly see the brownstone Williams Memorial Institute building, which later became St. Edmund's Hall. St. Albert's is there also, btw.
