   Photographic Inventory

Christ [Episcopal] Church
Bloomfield, Essex County

The photograph cannot fully convey the massiveness of this 1893 stone building. It includes both Gothic and Romanesque elements, a combination that the architect, William Halsey Wood, was to use repeatedly. Wood was born in Newark and designed at least 10 churches in the state, all of them imaginative. The congregation was formed in 1860. The church is located on Bloomfield Avenue.
