First United Methodist Church, Uvalde, TX

A very expensive version of this card caught my eye recently but the price was far beyond my budget. With luck I found one that was affordable and, in the meantime, looked to see if the building still stands. It does, though the UMC website has nothing to say about the congregation’s history. On-line sources, however, link San Antonio architect H. N. Hagy with the project and suggest a construction date about 1907-1908.

The on-line street view confirmed my suspicions about an Akron-type Sunday School, shown here as a link to new construction. That space has probably been renovated as social space and overflow, but the old Akron “shell” is a giveaway. The psotcard seemed to represent a stucco “Spanish Colonial” design; this street view, however, more clearly shows it to be a salon-pink brick.
