Stained Glass, St. Joseph's, St. Mary's Bay

Years ago, while driving through the town of St. Joseph's in St. Mary's Bay, I decided to photograph the historic church. When I approached the building I realized that it was in poor shape and no longer used. I took a few photos of the stained glass windows, a few of which weren't broken.

A couple of years later I returned to the area and saw no trace of the church. It had been torn down since my previous visit. I should have taken more photos when the opportunity presented itself!

The first image is a photo of the church as it looked the first time I saw it. The others show the artwok on the windows.
