    1896 - Paris; The church of Saint-Jacques-du-Haut-Pas, 17th Century. The literal translation of the church name is St. James of the Not High . . but in context it means not ostentatious, plain, simple, etc.

    On the card:
    Tableaux de La Foi, l'Espérance et la Religion, attribué à Le Sueur; Saint-Pierre, par Restout, etc. Statue de St. Jacques, par Foyatier, en 1797, l'Eglise servit au culte des Théophilanthropes sous le titre de "Temple de la Bienfaisance"
