Title:Bryn Athyn Cathedral modeler at work
Source:Raymond and Mildred Pitcairn Archives, Bryn Athyn, PA
Date:circa 1915
Description:A modeler poses with the clay head he is working on. Countless models were made during the construction of the cathedral "ranging from small-scale presentation of the whole structure to full-scale models of detailed carving, of columns, arches, mouldings, pinnacles, whole porches, that were tried in place, judged in the context of their surroundings, and modified" (Glenn, E. Bruce. Bryn Athyn Cathedral: The Building of a Church. Bryn Athyn: Bryn Athyn Church, 1971. p. 44).
