Title : First Christian Church
Creator : Saarinen, Eliel; Saarinen, Eero
Creator role : Architect
Date : 1941
Current location : Columbus, Indiana, United States
Description of work : "First Christian Church (1941), originally named Tabernacle Church of Christ, is one of the first Modern religious buildings in America and the first Modern building to be constructed in Columbus. Nationally recognized at the time of its construction, it had an impact on church design in the post-World War II era. First Christian Church was one of two churches designed by the firm of Saarinen and Saarinen, consisting of Eliel Saarinen and his son Eero. Saarinen answered questions about the suitability of a Modern design for a religious building by saying: ‘Our forefathers and we ourselves have been using the dead styles of alien cultures. We have combined them in thousands of different ways until the last drop of expressiveness has been squeezed out.’ Many believe that First Christian Church is a synthesis of the father’s and sons work, and of their independent approaches: Eliel’s focus on materials, craft, and relationship of the building to the user; and Eero’s Modern aesthetic. In 1941, Time Magazine described the building as, ‘the costliest modern church in the world, planned by Europe’s most famous modern architect and his son.’ Newsweek, in 1942, noted, ‘In style, the new Tabernacle is utterly unlike the seventeen other churches in Columbus or, for that matter, in almost any other city in the world.’" (Source: "National Historic Landmarks Program: First Christian Church", tps.cr.nps.gov/nhl/detail.cfm?ResourceId=1695315809&R…, Accessed June 8, 2009) For an exhaustive description of the building, including pertinent history, the architect’s biography, and bibliography of evaluative articles, please refer to the National Historic Landmark nomination form submitted for the building available at www.nps.gov/history/nhl/designations/samples/in/1stchris.pdf

Sanctuary, Christ Church, Alexandria, Virginia – Fine-Art Gicle Photographic Print – 8″x10″ Enlargement from a Classic Vintage Postcard

  • Sanctuary, Christ Church, Alexandria, Virginia
  • Classic Vintage Postcard Print
  • PhotographsAmerica offers thousands of landscape and city views. As well as thousands of historic prints from the Library of Congress Collection.
  • Each print is carefully packaged in either a strong card-board tube, or in a heavy duty card-board envelope to insure safe arrival.
  • Each print is custom printed using the fine-art Gicle process.

We all remember keepsake color postcards from generations ago. Some go back 100 years or more. Perhaps you sent many to loved ones and friends. The scenes of the Atlantic City and Coney Island boardwalks, scenic views of national parks, and images from large cities and small towns perhaps including yours! are treasures. Photographs America has enlarged hundreds of these classic postcards to a handsome 8″x10″ size, perfect for framing. Each is a custom-printed Fine-Art Gicle print on the highest-quality, premium photo paper. Please understand that we are working from actual postcards, which were mass-produced onto inexpensive cardboard stock. So the enlargements have a vintage look of their own, full of character. While beautiful and nostalgic, they cannot carry the sharpness and fidelity of our other Photographs America products. We love them and highly recommend these beautiful prints as keepsakes and gifts, but we wanted to be sure that you understand that they are not original works by our photographers. You will love them, too.
