Methodist Episcopal Church, Ames, IA

February 2, 2018

If the M.E. church in Ames, Iowa has been posted before, I apologize. But I couldn’t resist today because of this wonderful image, unromanticized as some postcards can be. Its eccentric boldness profits from black-and-white photography. I don’t have documentation, but suspect this is the work of the redoubtable Cincinnati firm Brown & Davis (or Brown, Burton & Davis), which is evident from the prominent “lantern” crowning the auditorium. If this is like other B&D church I’ve seen, the altar is in the octagonal bulge at the left.
