About this object

Front view of the Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Hughenden in 1925. The image depicts a group of men, women and children milling around outside the church, possibly after mass or at a wedding, as they are dressed in good clothing of the period. Also depicted are several vintage cars.

Sacred Heart Church on the corner of Flinders and Moran Streets was officially opened by Bishop Shiel on 10 August 1919. The Church building was later demolished in 1964 and Sacred Heart War Memorial Church was built around the corner on Mowbray Street.
