Do you sense a theme here?

Do you sense a theme here?

My theory throughout this projects has been: gather enough examples and patterns will begin to emerge. The theme of the corner entry with quarter-circular colonnade came into sharper focus today with the discovery of this grammar school in Selma, California. Does this say anything at all about the ecularization of church imagery at the turn of the last century?

Several of the churches above could easily have been a secular buildings — school, auditorium, etc. — as, for that matter, this school could just as easily be repurposed as a Protestant church.
