St. Mary’s Church – Walkerville – 1904

Photo from the collection of the Library of Congress

Last Friday of September! Today’s old photo comes again from the collection of the Library of Congress, and the Detroit Publishing Company Archives.

Today we take a look at St. Mary’s Church, designed by Cram, Goodhue & Ferguson of Boston. This picture must date from 1904, as the church looks built, with just finishing touches going on, and the landscaping still not done.

Here’s the view today.

With all old photos, it’s always about the details. I wonder what the story is here, with the couple and the woman?

Also, check the doorway, look out for the doggy.

Have a good weekend everyone! See you back here Monday, for the first post of October.

Time sure flies.
