Father Pitt

Why should the beautiful die?

Assumption School, Bellevue

Assumption School, Bellevue

Although we don’t find it listed among his works, Father Pitt suspects that this school may have been designed by John T. Comès. The polychrome brickwork and crenellations remind us of some of his more famous churches, and the fact that the parish hired his disciple Leo McMullen to design the main church after Comès was dead may be suggestive. If anyone at the parish knows who designed this building, Father Pitt would greatly appreciate a comment.

Obviously the parish was getting ready for a festival when old Pa Pitt stopped by a few weeks ago.
