Description
Literature

Black-and-white image of a church, in three-quarters view, on a hillside. The hill slopes up toward the right side of the image, and there is a tall pole in the foreground, which supports several power lines that run diagonally across the image and next to the church. The church is made of dark wood with a steeply sloping roof. There is a short steeple in the front of the roof, and three tall, arching windows along the left wall of the church. There is a smaller building in the background, behind the church, and the sky is filled with white, fluffy clouds.
