Description
Front exterior view of the Church of the Angels, located at 1100 Avenue 64 in Pasadena. Ivy is growing on the exterior wall of the bell tower. There is a man sitting on a bench that sits next to the church. The time on the clock of the bell tower is approximately 5:25. Two old model cars are partially visible on the right and left side of the church. 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.
