First Baptist Church, East Saint Louis, IL

November 7, 2016

East Saint Louis, on the Illinois side of the Mississippi, has not fared well economically. The recessed entries here, both front and side, partly conceal the A-A configuration of what I take as either a C or D auditorium, with a 1 or 2 Sunday School configuration. The congregation seems to have shrunk and relocated to the edge of the city.

UPDATE[11JUL2017]: It’s interesting how different images can change my perception of the work. Masking the buildings on the left with shrubbery was a bad move, in my view.
