Description
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.
Horse and buggy with Mrs. Josephine van Rossen, sons, Adrian and Walter, and governess Mina Hamilton are in front of the Church of Angels in Pasadena. The church's stain glass window and bell tower are clearly visible.
