St. James, Old South End

A closed parish. Nothing fancy, but it was servicable.
The building was constructed, I believe, in 1913.
I haven't seen a picture of the interior, but I've been told it was very nice. The "people's altar", made by parishioners and one of the best I've seen, and the statue of the parish patron, are at Immaculate Conception.

I am former student of St. James school. What fond memories the pictures of the old church bring back. The most amazing thing was the fact that we gathered for Mass every morning at the church, before school, then the whole school would walk 2 by 2,class by class, the 4 or 5 blocks to the school building. What must the neighbors have thought?
