This question is for Kevin Miller. Interesting your grandmother lived on Jamaica Street. My grandfather,great grandfather and uncles lived on Jamaica where Lagow crosses from about 1917-1940s. They were the Thompsons. Who is your grandmother? I have a list of many people living on the street back in those days. Also ask your grandmother if she remembers Lake Wahoo and the Strock and Tollerton Basket factory.

Born at old St. Paul Hospital, across Hall Street from Exall Park on Wednesday April 25, 1945 at 3:30 P. M. By the way, Exall Park was reputed to be one of the hangouts for the ever popular but highly dreaded gang, The Lakewood Rats. No one I knew ever saw a member of the Rats, but we were all scared to death of 'em, anyway.

Mike,

My grandmothers maiden name is Lilie Mae Raines. She would have certainly been on Jamaica St when your relatives were. She lived across the street from the high school.

I will ask her the questions you mentioned.

Mike,

I called my grandmother and she said the Thompsons lived across the street from her. She had one sister and three brothers some older some younger. Granny can't hear all that well anymore and I would be able to find out more in person instead of on the phone. Kinda interesting though!

I am not sure how old you are but could you or any of your relatives have known her, I am not sure how long her parents lived there, possibly into the 60's.. I can find out but it is hard communicating with her on the phone.

Born at the old Parkland Hospital on Maple Blvd in 1942, I will be 70 on June 5th this year. Lived and worked in Dallas, at Baylor Dental College, T.I. on Lemmon ave, Bell helicopter in Hurst Tx. and went with IBM on Turtle Creek in 1969. Moved to Longview Texas in 1975 as Resident Field Engineer with IBM. Retired very early and live in East Texas still. Live in the past as well as I can. Still miss the old Big D., just not real crazy about the new Big D. Did anyone ever decide that there will be an Get Together of Folks on board here?

What was old St. Paul hospital like? I've seen pictures of the neighborhood, it looks to be somewhere by where the Dallas Theological Seminary is now. Am I right? Any interesting little stores are anything that were right by it?

St. Paul was to the north of DTS. It was located on the NW corner of Bryan and Hall St. (at that time Hall ran through to Ross). The nurses lived on Convent street NE from the park. It was a big hospital.
The Belmont street car line ran up Bryan St. and it ended at Mockingbird lane. If my memory is right the interurban also ran up Bryan but it continued on the Sherman and Denison.

If you go to the Dallas Public Library site here:

[www.dallaslibrary2.org]

Click on collections in the banner and search for "St. Paul's Sanitarium", there are some external views.

A second search for "St. Paul's Hospital" will turn up a few internal views of the original as well as some photos of the new one.

I have seen photos online of the inside of the original, operating rooms, delivery rooms, etc, but cannot find them now.

The miniature golf place you refer to would have been Wee Saint Andrews, I think, on Marsalis iirc. Probably the best known and most liked miniature golf course in Dallas at the time.

Yes you are correct; I am getting to old to remember anymore the names! It was a wonderful place to play golf for 25 cents. The Doctors office for Methodist were across the street. My Doctor, long gone was Dr Crutcher who delivered me; no specialist them! he also sewed me up a few times as well!
