Photochrome postcard, with no border, divided back. Caption from back: Saint Paul Christian Methodist Episcopal Church, 1601 Barnard Street, Savannah GA 31401, (912) 233-2849. The CME church grew out of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South founded by John Wesley. During the emancipation of slaves, formation of an independent branch of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South by black religious leaders was undertaken in 1870. The red brick building was purchased from the Calvary Baptist Temple in 1964.
The postcard was produced by the Thomas Dexter Press which operated between 1934-1980 out of West Nyack, New York. They printed a wide variety of postcards using processes such as linens and photochromes. Dexter was the inventor of gang printing, a process where multiple printing jobs can be printed on one sheet. This process saved time and money. The company merged with MWM Color Press in 1980 to become MWM Dexter, and they moved to Aurora, Missouri.
