“…I said where’d you get your information from, huh? You think that you can front when Revelation comes?”

“So What’cha Want” – Beastie Boys (1992)

On the campus of Case Western Reserve University, on Cleveland’s east side, at University Circle– a rear view of The Church of the Covenant. This beautiful Presbyterian Church was designed by Ralph Adams Cram in Gothic Revival architectural style. The structure, built of Indiana limestone, was completed in 1911. The limestone is structural in use rather than ornamental, as there was no brick or steel support skeleton used. In 1980, The Church of the Covenant was added to the National Register of Historic Places.

  1. So used to this style of architecture here in the UK that I automatically looked for figurative carving, so common in medieval and Victorian churches — then realised, this is a Presbyterian building so no representations, following a strict interpretation of the first commandment. Still, a fine homage to this style. Looks like some remedial work’s being done inside the tower…
