At church, all the stained-glass windows have names of original church members painted on them. Our congregation dates to around the turn of the 20th century, and the main part of our building was completed in 1909.

Two blocks east of our church is a street that bears this family name.

I’ve written lately of wishing for good in-camera JPEGs from my digital cameras. This photo is straight from my iPhone 6s, no editing. That happens more than I care to admit with my iPhone. I only wish the phone were easier to hold and use as a camera.

In the little church I attend on the Near Westside of Indianapolis, the sanctuary windows are all stained glass and feature the names of original members. Their descendants attended until the last of them died about a decade ago. Today, these names are historic curiosities to the current members.

Captured: Stained glass, Logansport City Hall

Stained glass, Logansport City Hall

I was in Logansport recently for a quarterly board meeting of the Historic Michigan Road Association. We met at City Hall, where we honored Michigan Road historian Juanita Hunter. Juanita, who is in her 90s now, spent her early retirement years traveling the road with her husband, taking photographs and documenting the road’s stories. Her work is on file at the Indiana Historical Society.

After Logansport mayor Ted Franklin proclaimed it Juanita Hunter Day in Logansport, we continued with our normal agenda and even had a little lunch together. I wish now I’d photographed Juanita as well as this beautiful stained glass that makes up much of the ceiling on the City Hall’s top floor.
