Eglise Saint-Martin, Martigny-Courpierre, FrancePhoto by Yvette Gauthier
I can hardly believe this woman’s photostream! Further, I can hardly believe this church (1929-1933) which is Art Deco inside and out. Firstly, here’s a detail from the steeple. I will share photos of the unusual interior next. 
Here’s a wider view, as it appears in what looks to be a tiny village northwest of Reims. (See Google Street View.)

Church of St. Theresa of the Child Jesus, Rennes, France

I always love seeing Deco churches. 

Bad translation of the original French caption:

I first saw this visiting my son’s apartments, but I never have time to go … But this Sunday I decided to find time. And luckily it was open. Well, if the outside is not bad, and better under the sun, the interior is superb. It is built of brick, stone and concrete.

Salem, Massachusettsby Sid Penace
Detail of an abadoned church in Salem, one of my favorite cities on Cape Ann. My family kept a sailboat there for many years. Actually the eulogy I gave at my dad’s funeral was about going to Salem multiple times a week to go off on our boat. Deco isn’t really the city’s style but there are a few examples I guess, like more modern churches, parochial schools, storefronts, a few government buildings, I guess. Overall though the city is most pre 20th century stuff.
