Lowering the steeples, October 1938

 Notre Dame de Lourdes Church, October 1938. The twin 310-foot steeples are in the process of being lowered to 235 feet, shortly after the Hurricane of 1938, during which they swayed greatly, causing fear they might collapse. The work was performed by contractors Swift-McNutt of Providence.
