Methodist Episcopal Church, Dyersburg, TN

February 1, 2017


The color on postcards before 1920 is printed separately from the actually black-and-white image. And because these cards were produced at some distance from the building, any added color was at the discretion of the printer. Milwaukee was a center of postcard production, but many others were printed in Europe.  It becomes obvious when two cards are placed next to one another. The image of the UMC in Dyersburg, Tennessee isn’t pink or even salmon; neither is it what appears to be stucco. This church is built, in fact, of brick in a warm beige.

A single interior view on the church website seems to show an A-1 configuration running from left to right, that is parallel with the street front elevation. It also gives 1923 as the date of completion.
