Corsicana--Then and Now: First Baptist Church

Left is old post card, right is my photo this week. The church was built in 1924 with a red tile roof. Around 1989 the tiles were removed, new felt installed, and tiles replaced. On Saturday night, June 5, 1999, the roof collapsed. As you can see, the church was restored and is still in use.

This photo from The Baptist Standard (found on internet).

Your blog has been included in our guide.

Around The World with Daily Photoblogs Old and New is a brief history of the City Daily Photoblog movement and a guide to sites around the world.

The criterion for inclusion here is that photographs mainly from a specific geographical location have been posted at dated intervals, and archives are searchable by date. Although originally arising from the CDPB lists this is an independent publication. Inclusion here does not imply that a blog is officially a CDPB.

Please keep us informed of any changes to your details.
