A group photograph outside of the Seattle Japanese Methodist Episcopal Church (renamed Blaine Memorial United Methodist Church in 1956). Accompanying materials state, "Caucasian man may be Reverend E. L. Blaine who bought the church in First Methodist Church's name because Japanese Americans could not buy property."
