I’m very grateful to Fr David Belden for sending me these historic photographs of the former St. Edmund the Martyr, located at Davenport & Dovercourt. (For more information about St. Edmund’s, click on the link to the left.) I am also grateful to Susan Jennings, whose aunt had these photographs in her collection. Susan’s grandparents met and were married at St. Edmund’s. (They are the people “Xed” in the photograph below of the St. Edmund’s youth group.)
