Fr Patten's '1938' Photograph Albums
the building of the Shrine Church: his second album covers the period July-November 1937

Page 1 of 2 web pages

Fr Patten compiled two albums of his photographs recording the building of the Shrine church - he called this second album "The Shrine Extention 1937 No. 2" and the previous one was "No 1". The photographs date from July 20th to November 17th, and the captions given here are exactly as written by Fr Patten - he frequently used compass points in his descriptions and differentiated the true and liturgial directions by using quotation marks or the word 'strictly'. The photographs are mostly of the standard size at the time - 4x2.5 inches (10.5x6 cms). They are in reasonable condition for their age, and have now been enhanced as fully as possible.
