A vintage lithograph of St. Joseph, Crestline church interior -- I believe it's the building prior to the current church.  This is from a collection of lithographs from Packard, Butler & Partridge of Philadelphia.  You can see more, including Delphos, Fremont, and Fostoria at the link HERE.  Thanks to James Richardson for passing along!

Pioneers of SS. Peter & Paul Parish, Toledo - 1917


A reader of a previous post asked for some information about SS. Peter & Paul parish in Toledo.  The photo above is from a souvenir booklet from 1917, the 50th Jubilee of the parish and the dedication of its second (and current) church.  Toledo Public Library also has a history book of the parish published in 1967 -- see details HERE.
