Description
Photograph (streetscape, horizontal photography) of an exterior view of Christ Church (Episcopal), 12th Street and Flower Street, ca.1900. The Gothic-style church is made of coursed quarry-faced ashlar masonry. The windows are either squared, arched, or have pointed arches. The roof is covered with shingled tiles. A square central tower, standing at least a story taller than the rest of the church, has ornamental head sculptures on each of its corners and, like a much shorter adjacent tower, is crenelated. There is a cross at the top of the tower. Utility poles line the streets.
The church later became a Baptist Church and then Trinity Methodist Episcopal Church South under the direction of Reverend Dr. Robert "Bob" Shuler.
