Official Opening

Official Opening

The official opening of the ill-fated West End Chapel of Loftus. Well attended, gentlemen not only suited and booted; even top hats can be seen amidst the bowlers and straw boaters. Whilst the ladies are in floral dresses and equally well hatted! The banding in the brickwork of the chapel is of a similar style t0 that of the Congregational church at the end of Westfield Terrace.
