St. Patrick, Warehouse District
The little triangular windows, above the transept windows are interesting. They don't show from the interior. I wonder if there's an attic? Notice the work at the top corners. Fr. Hannin was a genius.
The apse. Most people don't notice the back of a church, but there's always something interesting. Look at that wonderful corbelling. It's also interesting to see how the two-story section is extended to surround the apse.
A side door. Those panels, flanking it, are a common feature of Victorian doors, but they're usually in wood, not stone.
