This linen postcard shows “Christ the King,” a shrine that’s one of a series of grottos in Dickeyville, Wisconsin. Built in the 1920s by Father Mathius Wernerus, the pastor of Dickeyville’s Holy Ghost Parish, the grotto also includes the Grotto of the Blessed Virgin, Grotto of the Sacred Heart, the Eucharistic Altar, the Holy Ghost Tree, the Crucifixion Group and the Patriotism Shrine.
