[St. Thomas Mount]
Photographer Glenn S. Hensley
Date 1945
Subject church; St. Thomas
Notes "Path to the shrine atop St. Thomas Mount. Views of the gate, the path, scenes looking back down and of structures at the top. When my friend Frank Bond and I reached the summit on this hot, humid day, we were met by a Catholic Sister who bade us sit in the shade and rest a moment. Soon she returned with a pitcher of lemonade and a dish of cookies (with sugar), a rare treat for civilians in those days. "
