St. Blaise, Kingston Avenue

Because today, February 3, is the feast of St. Blaise, a bishop-martyr in Armenia, I looked around for a photo of the church of St. Blaise that was merged into that of St. Francis of Assisi in 1980.  The parish of St. Blaise was established in 1908 as an Italian national parish.  The photo at this link shows the breaking of ground for a new building in 1954.
The Brooklyn Library Digital Collection offers many photographs, but the links seem to "time out."  You then have to reenter the search word, in this case the word blaise.
The church was at 520 Kingston Avenue between Maple and Woodward Streets. I wonder whether the Horeb Seventh Day Adventist church seen there on Google Street View is the 1954 church of St. Blaise.
