This also connects to the history of the Trinity Lutheran site to the south of the photo just above this post.

Trinity hospital has had the helping hand of Hawkinson, durable realtor, on many occasions. He traded the lots now occupied by the Bruce Dodson insurance building on Liberty Memorial hill, as down payment on the present hospital. The site for Salem home for the elderly, near the hospital, and the lots on which Trinity now is expanding southward toward Thirty- first street, were Hawkinson acquirements. Trinity building funds, too, have been fattened by Hawkinson at crucial periods. Some time ago Axel Hawkinson came upon two bottles of Madeira wine, and the reason why Hawkinson, not a wine bibber or fancier, acquired them was the date of their vintage— 1906—the same year Trinity hospital was born. Perhaps at some milestone in the hospital a toast should be quaffed from those bottles, Hawkinson says. Maybe when the preacher turns his back.
