Notes: 
Postmarked 1916; Essex, Ontario's first Roman Catholic church was built in 1887 and was located at the corner of Russell and Centre Streets; originally called St. John's Church, the church's name was changed to Holy Name of Jesus in 1931; in 1942 the original church was demolished and a new church built (with materials from the original church) at 146 Talbot Street South; in 1973, that church was subsequently demolished and a new church constructed on the same site; an addition to the church in 2000 added much needed space, including a parish hall, offices, meeting rooms and a kitchen; the postcard is addressed to Mrs. C.F. Larkins; special thanks to Wendy Cunningham of HNJ parish for the information provided.
