This image is a watercolor painting of Christ Church (also known as Christ Episcopal Church) in Mobile, Alabama done by William T. Warren, Jr. in 1939. The painting shows the front exterior of the church with its steeple, doors, columned porch, steps, sloping roof. There is an iron fence in front of the church, landscaped grounds with trees, and a man on the street and a woman in the church door in period dress. The church is placed within framing art showing its architectural features including a close-up of a roof corner and the steeple, a floor plan and a side view of the church. In the lower right corner, there is an Alabama Polytechnic Institute School of Architecture stamp with a handwritten inscription "2nd Medal." The painting is in good condition and is encapsulated.
