I hope my readers won't mind the absence of a photo with this particular post. This post is about the very same building whose photo appears in the immediately previous post -- the former convent at St. Stanislaus, Cleveland, Ohio. By an almost 'freak' set of circumstances, I was just told of how some individual has paid $30,000 for "salvage rights" to the old convent, and has already begun to sell off anything and everything, including interior architectural features. I guess the fate of this building is fairly obvious now. It would appear that money -- as always -- has once again emerged "victorious" over History. From a local diocese that has a long and inglorious track-record regarding their planned destruction of buildings they cease to use, this certainly comes as no surprise.
