They gave us this little booklet on First Communion day.
@Stuft: I know! This was in the 70s! They must have been left over from the Cold War.

“Photograph of an exterior view of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Stockton, ca.1900. A small tree stand at center foreground in a grass field spotted with flowering plants. A palm tree stands behind the field at left and a street lies across its far side. The tall church stands behind the street at center with an arched entrance and extremely high, narrow steeple. A wall of trees extends from either side of the church.”
“Photograph of the exterior of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Twelfth Street and Los Angeles Street, Los Angeles, between 1901-1915. Two tall rectangular towers with spires on top flank the main entry of the Romanesque-style church. A large arched stained-glass window is over the 3-arched entry. Streetcar rails and electric lines traverse the street in front.”
Church burned down 1983.
