After the war, there was not much in the way of high quality material for the builidng of new churches.  The idea was to build temporary and quick chapels and churches, and wait till funds could be raised and supplies were more available, to build a more lasting structure.

Here Father Alvin LaFeir, Capuchin, stands next to his simple altar.  The wooden platform underneath is not even painted nor surfaced with tiles or carpeting.   For the sanctuary wall, just some ecclesiastical fabric tacked onto a wooden wall.  The tabernacle is made of wood.

If someone can identify this church, please let me know.
