Some history of the building and comments below the photo

The old convent was torn down sometime in the mid-1930s and replaced with the present vacant brick building.  In an interview with former Dogtown resident, Sam Bellamy, he told me that when Father O'Connor got the bid on razing the old convent, he turned to unemployed Dogtown residents, parishioners and others, and offered them the work since so many were unemployed.

Note that Tamm Ave. was brick at that time, as were most of the streets of Dogtown.
