When you look at this picture which must have been taken in a Catholic Church after a Sunday Mass for some parish publication, what runs through your mind.
Let me take one thing off the table. This is a parish in a large city and the parish comprises 10 square blocks in a predominantly Catholic neighborhood in the 1940's. So there is a homogenous look to this parish. From appearances it isn't multi-cultural.
Apart from this, what strikes you about this photo compared to what we might see today if a similar photo was taken after a principle Sunday Mass?
