Fr Patten's Photograph Album the building of the Holy House 1931 page 1 of 4 pages 2 3 4
The numbers given here are as written by Fr Patten. Towards the end of his album there are no captions. Reference key is: page number and photograph letter:Fr Patten's number (when used). His captions usually include compass points: the main door is the WEST front. The ‘temporary’ image of Our Lady of Paris above the West front can be seen in several pictures. The photographs are usually of the standard size at the time - 4x2.5 inches (10.5x6 cms). They have deteriorated a great deal - through age, the glue with which they were fixed and some obvious attempts at removal. Some of them have small strips missing from their edges. As building progresses, the photographs capture some of the excitement that Fr Patten must have felt as he saw his vision turn to reality.
