The Swimming Pond, La Salle Institute, Glencoe, MO c. 1923

Students at La Salle Institute in Glencoe, Missouri patiently wait their turn for a dip in the swimming pond.  The Christian Brothers first came to Glencoe, Missouri in the 1870s and soon after established La Salle Institute, the novitiate of the St. Louis District.  Young men aspiring to become Christian Brothers prepared, studied, and, of course, participated in recreational activities there for over 90 years.  Today La Salle serves as a retreat center.
