    Didn't it get a heavy revamp after the war? todays building has lost most of what that looks like in 1929.

    I think that might be true,but looking close,on "Streetview",You can make out 1931,on the Hope st. side of the building?

    Hi steve,

    The photo is of St. Mary's church.

    1908 map - it is recorded as 'St. Mary's Church', with the portico intact.

    1928 map - it is still recorded as a church.

    1955 map - the church has since been demolished, and the School for the Indigent Blind has built a modern extension on the corner site.
