St James United church - Photography

2:53 PM

This is not about the vanishing St James United church. I'm glad to say it's staying put (for now). No, I'm just sharing some photos I took while documenting a dozen or so sites.

With photography timing is everything and this a good example. I took these photos yesterday and, well, I arrived just at the right moment.

  1. When I left Montreal in 2000, St James United was still "encased" in that 1930's building with that neon sign (how weird was that??!!!). I couldn't believe it when I went back to Montreal to visit family and finally saw the church "naked" for the first time in my life!
