Update 3-feb-2012 thanks to John Wrede for a link to The Goose’s 99-Year History: From Candlers to Paideia see page 7.
This Mother Goose burned in October 2009. She's back.
It was a house turned school building for the Atlanta's Paideia School, It was a fine house if not a mansion in Druid Hills.
The ruins made an interesting sight but didn't make me feel very good.
This was grand.
I can't find before pictures from any era. This is the north side, front porch on the left.
You can see how much of the chimneys showed above the roof.
Hint's of the grand old house.
The fire didn't get down here, no sign of soot.
Mother Goose is back.
Old on the left, new on the right.
Was Mother Goose on the old porch?
Look at the arches in the basement. This is the east side.
The west side.
Nice chunky details.
The new Goose is quite good, purpose-designed for the school, modern, safe, three times the space.
But this isn't the way we wanted it to happen.
Long live Mother Goose.
