Black and White 2016 — photo 66 of 127: ‘H’ is for Hoyt. The very nordic-looking steeple of the historic (built 1905) First Immanuel Lutheran Church in the 600 block of NW 19th Avenue. This architecture isn’t surprising when you realize that the congregation, formed in 1879, was initially called the Scandinavian Evangelical Lutheran Church, with services held in Swedish rather than English. That language choice explains why, a year later, their name was changed to Swedish Evangelical Lutheran Immanuel Congregation. As seen on my Portland NW 19th / 21st Avenues Alphabet District walking tour, June 2016. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 35-100mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
