Immaculate Conception, Old South End

This shrine is in one of the transepts. Msgr. Sawkins, the pastor for a good part of the 20th century, found the mosaic copy of one of Murillo's paintings of the Immaculate Conception in Rome.

Beautiful picture, but way too much frame for my tastes ;-)

Very 20's. I came to know the 20's style well from visiting a host of maiden and widowed aunts.
