Methodist Episcopal Church, Whittier, CA

Though he wasn’t born in Whittier, California, that community is associated with former President Richard Nixon, whose family relocated there in 1922. They were Quakers, of course, and unlikely to have set foot in this Methodist church.

Besides being a fine example of the A-A, I thought it would also serve to illustrate the differences that often occurred in postcard production—printed very often by companies hundreds, if not thousands, of miles from the subject. Taken in black and white, the colors were sometimes guessed at during production, which often yielded very different appearances.
