A tribute to the treasure trove of ecclesiastical art and architecture in the Diocese of Toledo.
Interesting. I assume the nave was completely rebuilt at some point? The current clerestory/roof condition is completely different than the historic postcard. I was also struck when visiting at how the character of the interior (which almost seems Byzantine or Lombard Romanesque), is much different than the Gothic Revival exterior typical of Ginther.
Someone mentioned that a tornado had hit the church. I checked in Mossing's Diocese history, and on March 9, 1918, a tornado destroyed the church pictured in the post card. Within a year, the parish had rebuilt a church that is similar to the previous one, but not the same. So you are correct!
