Title (Fre)

Chaire d' église de l' Assomption


ca 1930


Interior view of Assumption Church at the corner of London St. W. and Huron Line [now the corner of University Ave. W. and Huron Church Rd.]; the photo offers a close look at the ornate, carved pulpit which raises six feet from the floor; notice the curved stairs that lead to the pulpit, that hug the adjacent column; notice the elegant wall decoration and devotional statue of the Virgin Mary, and the stained glass windows; pews are simple, carved wood; damage to the original negative is apparent with the speckled white discolouration on the photo.
