View of Erie from Academy High School 1928

"High stands our alma mater, overlooking lake and town..."

Here is a shot of the City of Erie taken by Schauble from the promenade of Academy High School in 1928 for the Academe, Academy's yearbook. The location of Academy makes for a great view of the city, looking north from the hill. Academy is now Northwest Pennsylvania Collegiate Academy, which is located at 2825 State Street.

The peak of St. John's Lutheran Church is visible on the upper left side of the photo. If you follow the grandstand bleachers along the left side of the picture, you can see the smokestack of the Koehler Brewing Company.

Here is a link to an article about Academy High School and Veterans Memorial Stadium:

  1. We used to go to dances with live bands on Friday nights at St. John's Lutheran. I can remember shimmying to "Wipeout".
