Crew, the Last Supper is oft portrayed throughout Christendom and is not exclusively Catholic.

Seems like it could be at Shrine of the Little Flower in Royal Oak.

The surround has definite '30s-'40s Streamline Moderne styling cues.

Needs more film grain and less contrast:

holy crap I am really laughing at this one!

I think you might be able to identify the location. If you look out the window behind Jesus you can see some railroad tracks and looks like a sign but I can't make it out.

Is it the Belle Isle bridge?

Yes and no. I posted this picture on my photoblog which can be found here.

Sailor Rick, from this site, visited the blog and stated that it was located in White Chapel Cemetery in Troy, Michigan. However, for the sake of accuracy, I searched for a comparable picture. Unfortunately, the only picture I found of the Last Supper in White Chapel doesn't match. That photo can be viewed here.

So unless the Last Supper in White Chapel has been modified over the years, the location of the photo has not been identified.

Is it possible that it was moved to White Chapel from the location in the old photo? Because it looks like the same last supper but without the framing around it.

I know that doesn't solve the where is the picture question, but it could help in finding the answer.

Okay, I looked at it again and changed my mind. It doesn't look the one in the old photo.
