What was once the crisp carving of a schoolgirl has morphed into an almost indiscernible lump of stone. It has taken only eight decades of air pollution, harsh winters, and toxic rainwater to reduce a limestone (albeit probably not of the highest quality) carving to this. The youngsters who first saw this girl, those who were comforted by her watching eyes and reassuring smile, are gone—and soon will be this schoolgirl. (Ebenezer Lutheran Church Community House 1650 West Foster Avenue.)
