    St. Louis Cathedral  "St. Louis Cathedral, in St. Louis Missouri, a magnificent Romanesque-Byzantine basilica.  In construction since 1908, the whole interior above the height of 50 feet is covered by superb mosaics.  Only the two transept half domes and neighboring “soffits” or underarches had been painted more than 50 years ago, and, badly deteriorated, needed replacing.  It was determined to accomplish this replacement with mosaics of the Resurrection and the Holy Spirit.  I had the good fortune to be the artist selected, two years ago.  In another two years my part of the project should be finished.  To complete areas of 82 feet circumference by 42 feet in height, and of 76 feet in length by 18 feet in height, and of 76 feet in length by 18 feet in width, with the largest figure 14 feet tall, will demand at least that time span.  Of 8,000 square feet, only half is already safely on its way."

    Martha Bewick writes, "This is a photo of Mary A. Reardon (born in 1912) and Paul C. Reardon (born in 1909). It could have been taken in 1914 and probably behind their home at 1200 Hancock Street in Quincy MA. The house was one of those on "Doctors' Row" on Hancock Street. The house had been built by Thomas Adams in the 1700s, and is now the location of the Citizens Bank building." [Photo credit: collection of Martha Reardon Bewick]

    026 1919c Daniel B Reardon family portrait by Rice
    Dr. Daniel Bartholomew Reardon and his young family. This photo was taken at the Sue Rice Studio in Quincy, MA, around 1919. From L to R: Mary Agnes Reardon (1912-2002), Mary Cashman Reardon (1877-1952), Daniel Bartholomew Reardon 1877-1961), George Daniel Reardon (1916-1998) and Paul Cashman Reardon (1909-1988). [NOTE of Donna J. Goldstein: Martha Bewick estimated that this photo was taken around 1917, but I think it more likely to be 1919, at which time, George would have been 3, Mary Agnes 7 and Paul 10. In 1917, George would have only been 1 yr old, and this child looks older than that.] [Photo credit: collection of Martha Reardon Bewick]
