Methodist Episcopal Church, Marion, SC

June 30, 2015


There is often considerable difference between the image of a church on a postcard and its actual appearance, which is not necessarily a factor of age difference. Colored postcards were based on black-and-white photography that was interpreted by the printed hundreds of miles away from the building itself. Indeed, many U.S. postcards were printed and colored in Europe, so the coloration is often invented. That seems to be the case here, since google.maps shows me a building that is honey-colored, almost on the verge of peach, rather than the wimpy cream-grey shown here.


The present church website gives 12 September 1912 as the day of cornerstone laying, but no architect is mentioned.

If I’m reading this correctly, it’s a classic C-1 format.
