Time to check out another Old Northside church. Or at least, former church. It’s latest use has been as a private home.

The Old Northside’s Preservation Plan says this building was designed by Vonnegut, Bohn and Mueller, architects. (And plenty of Vonneguts lived in the vicinity) But it also says construction of this began in 1913. Perhaps this was an addition to the original building, since we have this second post card dated October 20, 1911:

Frequently, there was some artistic license employed in the coloring of and splicing nearby buildings out of the picture. Which is better red or green?

Presumably, this postcard for Mollie Martin of Martinsville was written at Union Station. sigh.
