"Hello little girl, Suday afternoon. I am home, as blue as blue can be. Gee, how I wish you were here. Grammie Bell still very sick. Connie is better. Jean is spending the day with me, and Buddy has a broken toe. Too sad about Uncle Bill. Ethelbert has a new car. My mother was over to see Sue last Sunday, She is well. Lovingly yours forever, Maude "  

      When Tony Wilkinson and I were graduate students at USC, we lived at the edge of Saint James Park just off Adams and Figueroa in Los Angeles. This very beautiful Christian Science church was historic even then.  -  Historic postcards in the Archives of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley - Gift from Gerald Fecht - December 2010

I worked on those Stained glass windows, 70' ft. up block and tackle to get down and put back. I did the restoration of 16 of the 32 to windows, before it was sold, now the church is something else.
