Henry Hugh Armstead designed the cartoons for the Nativity scene that Salviati executed in mosaics for the central panel of the reredos.
The interior in 1899.
The red stone that was used to build the church made it prone to deterioration, so it was finally demolished in 1968. In late 2012, the corner of Market and Pimlico Streets was the site of a Blockbusters video store. The fate of the mosaic reredos is unknown. It may have been moved to another church nearby.
