Mr. Andrews Goes to Church


 The Old North Church was the original building built for the Sierra Madre Congregational Church.  Before they had their own building (or had even chosen which demonination they would become), original churchgoers held services in the first public school building, located about two blocks south at the corner of Live Oak (now Orange Grove) and Hermosa.  During that time, Mr. W.S. Andrews, originally a Baptist, came to church bringing not only his wife and children, but also the family's organ and wood for the fire.  That's what I would call a dedicated church member!

  1. Sometimes Sierra Madre looks like New Hampshire.

    1. I've thought the same thing! I've never been there, but that's certainly how I picture it to be...

  2. I'm trying to envision someone carting an organ to church each time, talk about dedication! A nice looking building and lovely day to boot:)

    1. Then, yesterday, it was crummy for a lot of the day. You just never know!

    1. I think so, too! It was on Matlock once, when they just showed a random kid riding a bike up the street. :)

  6. You know, you take nice pictures. Or, maybe you just have a very fancy, xpensive camera compared to my pt & shooter - but I hope I don't have to get a fancy camera!

    1. Oh, thanks, Cafe! Although I do have a slightly fancy point & shoot, it needs to go to the camera hospital. Lately (including this photo), I've been using my good ole iPhone!
