Blair Park Chapel
The Chapel in Blair Park was built by the Presbyterian Church as an outreach for the children who lived in the neighborhood. Miss Anna Fisher was unable to be a missionary overseas, so she and her friends and family taught Bible stories and songs. After the death of Miss Anna, the church lay in disrepair, and was damaged further by the 1972 hurricane. The Orthodox Christians rehabilitated the church, and it stands regally at the beginning of Blair Park.

We can only speculate whether the boys are going to war or returning from it. From the clothing, this appears to be the Spanish-American War.
