Corpus Christi Church, southwest corner 49th and Grand Boulevard, c. 1920. Irish Catholics built this splendid edifice in 1915. When the parish was founded in 1901, the neighborhood was a new residential district of substantial brick houses and flat buildings. In 1933, Corpus Christi took on a new identity as a black Catholic parish. [Courtesy The Chicago Catholic]
