St. Mary's Catholic Church in Umbarger, Texas

Photographer's Note:
A lady at the St Mary's church in Umbarger was so kind to show me around the church and explain the work done by the Italian Prisoners. In the large painting behind the altar was an angel. The artist, from his memory of his wife, painted her face on the angel. Years later after the war the artist brought his family back and she was able to see her face on the angel. - Barclay Gibson, January 25, 2009
