Lafayette Blum (mis-print) Lafayette Bloom Recent photograph
Thanks to Jean Swango I have finally discovered that this card is a misprint. The school is not Lafayette Blum, but Lafayette Bloom. At the time of its opening on Dec. 6, 1915 it was considered the most modern school in Cincinnati. Named for the principal of the 27th district school until he left in 1911. The father of the current mayor of Cincinnati, Senator William Mallory attended this school. Located at 1941 Baymiller St. It closed in June 2006 and was up for auction on 11-06-12, I do not know the results.

Madisonville High School
Madisonville School #1
Madisonville School #2
Madisonville school #3
The first Madisonville School is shown in the 2nd row above. Constructed in the area between Ward, Prentice and Mathis Streets with the tracks of the Cincinnati & Marietta Railroad forming the southern side of the lot. The school was constructed in 3 sections with the 1st section beginning classes in 1872 and the last part being completed in 1889. The next two rows above show the school that replaced it. Designed by architect Henry Hake it was opened in 1903 at 4836 Ward St. It is now used by the "New Life Temple" as a Christian School. The last row above shows the school that replaced #2. Built in 1909 next door at 4837 Ward Street. Both of the schools continued to operate until 1919 when all high school students were transferred to the newly constructed East High School now called Withrow. The #3 school was demolished some time in the late 80s.
The Miami and Miamitown names are basically the same, the Miami name was permanently changed to Miamitown sometime after WWI. The Miami School card above is very rare and so is any information about the school itself. I believe it was located on Mill Street and the principles name was William S. Lawyer, and that's it. Any help anyone?

The Archbishop died before the school opened and his successor, Archbishop Karl J. Alter approved on January 15, 1951 that the school be named for Archbishop McNicholas. The school, located at 6536 Beechmont Ave., was purchased from the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Medaille by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Cincinnati on July 1, 1998. You can easily see the original building in the aerial view of the school.
