Royal Oak (Dondero) High School, 75th Anniversary

A rare aerial view of Royal Oak (later George A. Dondero) High School, 1930. Note Cass Athletic Field behind the school, the tall brick school chimney*, the old oak tree (still standing), the houses along Willis Avenue in the foreground (now all gone), and the "sand lot" in the immediate foreground.

Comment: My father in his youth threw a snowball up and into the flue pipe at the top of the chimney.
