1. I realize that I am generalizing here, however I begin to see a pattern in the style and brickwork of the educational buildings you have posted at various times. I went back to a previous blog entry which was of many sites in downtown Edmonton. I wanted to find a photo of the Saskatchewan River Valley. I did and it is a beautiful site indeed. As I looked at those downtown photos, I saw many architectural styles but none like the schools I’ve seen. The door to Concordia is a beautiful thing. The multi-paned windows above the door and the arch and the crisp white all feel quite welcoming. Thank you Anne!

    • You are quite right, Mary Beth. There are a lot of similarities in these educational buildings. They are all heavily influenced by European architecture and were all built at roughly the same time.

  2. I went to Concordia High School and then Concordia Teachers College, now Concordia University Nebraska in Seward, Nebraska. It is still affiliated with the Lutheran Church as are the other school in the Concordia University system in the US. 🙂
