50s Church

This is Our Lady Help of Christians, Slovenian, a Catholic church located downtown that was built by the Slovenian community in 1954. It has such lovely proportions and I really like that spire that seems so 50s-like in style. Sorry about all the wires but they are everywhere!

I like the use of bricks to create an accent in the facade. Very simple building but nice.

The local catholic church to me is a 1940's conversion, only the front is original and dates back to the 1700's

I do love the simplicity of its design.

It is quite attractive this style of architecture. I do like the art above the door and the mosaic arrangement of the window squares.

'Tis a beautiful building and so typical of many churches of that era - of various demoninations ... especially those central steps to the entry.

It does have a 1950's look to it! I didn't even notice the wires until you said something. I guess I'm so used to seeing them.

I really like this church tank you for the little history.
I think that sometimes wires in the photos make beaty like this.

I really like the look of it, and it does feel of that era.

EG CameraGirl said...

I like the style too and, like Ciel, I'm quite surprised to like anything from the 50s. :))

Being born in 1950, yes, this does bring back fond memories for me of that time. Thanks for visiting my blog. I am enjoying seeing churches from other places.
