St Joseph’s Postcard 1908

 

1908 St Joseph's 1200dpi wm

This little gem is a previously unseen postcard from 1908 which made its way across the Atlantic to America. Dated by the postmark itself, it shows the magnificent completed St Joseph’s Church on Glasgow Road. The sender of the postcard on the back explains the church was completed just a couple of years earlier.

You can see the pristine stonework on the church and surrounding walls, ironwork all complete and even gas lighting about to be run into Mayberry Place, a lamp standard there in readiness. In the background, the old School/Chapel.

Thanks to Gordon Cook for this great find!
