The photograph we have for you today was taken at the Knott Street Community Center, circa 1951. The center was renamed Matt Dishman Community Center in the late 1960s. There is a quote written on the back of this photograph stating, “Older adults, as well as girls and boys, keep the ping pong tables busy in the early evening hours at the Knott Street Center. Murals, the work of Oliver Dillner, one of the recreation supervisors at the center, show up nicely in this corner-of-the-room shot.” More information on the Matt Dishman Community Center can be found here.
