The two generation perspective begins with beloved Monsignor Bishop’s 25 Year Anniversary at St. James Cathedral where he served as pastor from 1933-1957. Included are highlights of Orlando life such as watching the fountain on Lake Eola being built, walking to Kreskies, viewing parades from the Orlando Public Library entrance on Rosalind, summer reading competitions at the Library, graduating from St. James School, and as Mrs. Buning shares, “The challenge to keep some of the memories of The City Beautiful for future generations”.
