Methodist Episcopal Church, Pasadena, CA

Pasadena’s Methodist Episcopal church is long gone, replaced by something far more orthodox; built in 1905-1907, it stood only into the 1920s. It was designed by San Francisco architect J. Cather Newsom in a loose interpretation of the Mission style, popular during Southern California’s first boom period. Usually identified as “Lake Avenue M.E.,” a semicircular sanctuary was joined with the Sunday School on its right interior side [the wing shown in the distance], making it a C-1 or C-2.

The view below was used to make the card but lost much of its clarity in the translation:
