Mystery Modern :: Lost and Found!

Back in June a blog reader sent me a jpg of this unmarked photo looking for help. I posted the image here and in my flickr. It took three months, but we now have a positive identification.

This is the "Social Hall" of Bethany United Methodist Church in Pontchartrain Park, 4533 Mendez Street. google street view

Bethany had eleven feet of standing water after Hurricane Katrina. It was totally gutted and renovated. The church reopened on October 22, 2006.
A very special thanks to Carol Reese for helping us identify this structure. Prof. Reese recently served as co-editor for the Pontchartrain Park and Gentilly Woods Landscape Manual, a joint project of Longue Vue House and Gardens and the Pontilly Disaster Collaborative.
