There was a time when Cherry Lane actually had a number of cherry trees. This postcard shows what Cherry Lane looked like looking south from Darlington Avenue in 1902.
Looking closely, you can see that there was only one house on the road back then. The area on the right of the photograph, near where you can see a wooden fence, would become the location of the first St. Paul’s Roman Catholic Church in 1904.
This postcard is from the author’s personal collection.
