On the corner of Wissahickon at SchoolHouse La. there are a few tennis courts and here you find a little stone wall on the Wissahickon side. When I was 4 years old I was walking passed here with my mother and seeing the wall I just had to walk along on top of it. Now I remember that I was very scared when the elevation to the wall started to increase. At that point I asked my mother to hold my hand, which she did but I was still very scared, so much so that I recall the feeling to this day, but I did make it to the end. Thru the years I’ve passed that spot walking or on my bike or in a car hundreds of times but never really looked at the wall. About 20 years ago I was walking past the wall and looking at it for the first time since I was small, I could not believe it’s size. Starting at the low end it was about 2 inches high and the far end about 2 feet high. So it is with everything---it’s not what we knew.
