Girls' Latin took over this building for the school year beginning Sept 1955. I entered as a 'sixie' that year and became part of the first class to go there from 7th grade to 12th grade, class of 1961. We were a graduating class of 144 girls and got together last year (2006) for our 45th reunion. Oh, the memories, both good and bad. Glad to see the building is still being used.
