Sheep are grazing in the foreground. The steeple of the Church of the Angels, located at 1100 Avenue 64 in Pasadena, is barely visible in the distance. Anonymous quote under the photo, "[W]hen completed it had as perfect a setting as any church in an English countryside." Modeled after Holmby St. Mary's Church near Dorky, Surrey, England, the church was designed by English architect Arthur Edmund Street and built by local architect Ernest Coxhead. The cornerstone was laid on April 20, 1889. Until 1899 this area of Pasadena was known as Garvanza.
