Second Baptist Church, Little Rock, AR

It is difficult to believe that this amazing masonry pile stood for a little more than forty years. Second Baptist Church was built at the corner of Seventh and Scott streets in 1910 but torn down some time in the 1950s for an even larger complex. There is no certainty that this was an A-A building, however, though by that point southern states had begun to accept what was a Yankee invention.

The two-story extension at the rear was probably the Sunday School; I’m hopeful that a movable partition allowed it to join the auditorium.

…And then I found this amazingly sharp 8-by-10 black-and-white photograph that knocks the postcard right out of the water:
