Methodist Episcopal Church, Shushan, NY

June 20, 2018

The asking price for this card is $49.99, and I can understand why. It’s also way beyond my means. The image, however, is very likely the interior of an A-A church.

The street view shows a modest brick, Gothic Revival building. Any discrepancies in roof slope might be attributed to scissors trusses (the outer roof is steeper than the interior ceiling). And the “L” accessed by the folding doors is a small rectangle, too small for subdivision into multiple Sunday school spaces—so probably not a genuine Akron. But as an auxiliary overflow space it serves a similar purpose.

Shushan is a tiny community in upstate New York about fifty miles northeast of Albany, near the Vermont border.
