Église Notre Dame du Travail


While on my way to another destination, I found this church which was built between 1899 and 1901 for the working neighborhood all in steel and iron.  It is interesting that this church was constructed in the same period as La Tour Eiffel and perhaps by some of the same laborers.

The art nouveau design of the organ is nestled in the midst of the iron and steel, providing a soft touch to this interesting church.

bon dimanche

The name of this church is quite interesting, sounds like a reminder that everyone should do their part...
God bless you!

Makes you wonder if it was built of iron and steel as a tribute to the workers or to remind them of their place in society. The organ is lovely and your photo tempts me to step in there some day for a visit. Bon dimanche!

It's hard to imagine that the surroundings are iron and steel, they appear to be stone. I love the warm wood tones with the metal pipes.
