DIDJAKNOW?—North Parker Shawn Shaw commented recently on a Pillar to Post trivia item and it got me thinking about other North Park minutiae. Stuff that every historically minded hipster should know when bantering with the turistas. Shawn pointed out that two icon architects (two centuries ago) designed the St. Luke’s Chapel at Gunn and 30th Street. Who were they? Answer: Irving Gill and William Sterling Hebbard in 1897 designed the chapel, but it wasn’t until 1924 that it was moved to its present location.
