There are some old photos in the series, including a couple of the co-cathedral in Galveston, St. Mary's, built in the mid-19th century.
That building survived the Galveston hurricane. The priests had taken refuge in the cathedral, and were standing with the bishop at the high altar when the bell tower suddenly collapsed and crashed through into the nave. The bishop turned to the rector, Fr. Kirwan, and told him, "Prepare these priests for death."
As it happened, they all survived.
