Overview

You never would guess in visiting Cathedral Court, with its people's hall and its public baths, its clean, paved street and general air of smug propriety, that it harbors a notorious past. But those who knew it by its maiden name, before it was married to respectability, recall Calvary Alley as a region of swarming tenements, stale beer dives, and frequent police raids.

Overview

You never would guess in visiting Cathedral Court, with its people's hall and its public baths, its clean, paved street and general air of smug propriety, that it harbors a notorious past. But those who knew it by its maiden name, before it was married to respectability, recall Calvary Alley as a region of swarming tenements, stale beer dives, and frequent police raids. The sole remaining trace of those unregenerate days is the print of a child's foot in the concrete walk just where it leaves the court and turns into the cathedral yard.
All the tired feet that once plodded home from factory and foundry, all the unsteady feet that staggered in from saloon and dance-hall, all the fleeing feet that sought a hiding place, have long since passed away and left no record of their passing. Only that one small footprint, with its perfect outline, still pauses on its way out of the alley into the great world beyond.

Alice Caldwell Rice is best known for her book Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch, but she was a prolific author who wrote many other great books as well. This is one of them. The author's familiar assets are all here: plucky heroines, rising above circumstances, sharply drawn characters, wit and humor. If you have read and enjoyed Mrs. Wiggs, I strongly suggest you check out this book as well. It is every bit as delightful, and perhaps more so from its relative unfamiliarity and newness to many readers.
