Another example of Barry Byrne’s work: St Thomas the Apostle, Hyde Park, Chicago, built in 1924. The terracotta portal was designed by Byrne and executed by Alfonso Ianelli. I presume that Byrne was aware of the significance of having red doors on the church.

St Patrick’s, Racine, Wesconsin (1924). Unfortunately, Byrne’s original desgin for the sanctuary was subjected to a “reordering”.

Christ the King, Tulsa (1926). Again the original sanctuary design has suffered from an ill advise reordering.
