The church was built in the early 1900's and is closely surrounded by housing, so a good view of the outside of the building was difficult to find.
Inside, my photo does not do justice to the magnificent, semi-circular apse. The images of Christ, Mary Magdalene and St. Augustine were painted in the late 1980s, with a stunning background of gold leaf. I was very rusty after a couple of months without keeping up my drawing practice and my attempt to get this aspect down on paper failed miserably, so I found a viewpoint in the narrow strip of garden bounding one side of the building.
