This is an original 1947 black and white photogravure of Christ Church (1773) in Alexandria, Virginia. An Episcopal church built from 1767 to 1773, Christ Church in Alexandria was designed by James Wren and built by John Carlyle. The structure is a brick, two-story colonial style church detailed with stone quoins and window surrounds, a hip roof, and a prominent tower that was added between 1785 and 1815. The Church was frequented by George Washington and Robert E. Lee and was visited by Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill on January 1, 1942 in commemoration of the World Day of Prayer for Peace. In 1970, the structure was declared a National Historic Landmark.
