church door

This church---The First Church of Christ, Scientist at 17th and Franklin---sits on a corner and muscles right up to the sidewalk.  I've always admired the door.  Only recently did I realize that the iron strapping includes initials.  Duh.  Not very observant of me.   This church was constructed in the early 20th century but I haven't been able to find the name of the architect.  I do know it has an original Tiffany window that was restored a few years ago.  I hope to get inside one day to photograph it.


  1. I too would not have noticed the letters had you not mentioned it. Could be an example of subliminal mind control by the church.

  2. That actually is a very nice door (compared to the current architecture of churches around here which look like boxes with windows).

  3. This is aa wonderful door, along with the filigreed railing.
