St. Francis de Sales? I Don't Think So

After the kerfuffle, below, about a picture identified by the library as St. Anthony but which appears to be St. Joseph's, in Maumee, I decided to run this one. It's identified as St. Francis de Sales.
UPDATE: Kevin Hammer pointed out, by noticing a sign at the upper left, that the picture's reversed. Mystery solved. It's the old St. Paul's Methodist, which was torn down in 1914.
Take a look at the facade of St. Francis de Sales and tell me how that's possible. Notice the positions of the tower and the side doors. I'll be doing a bit of research tomorrow to see if I can figure out what it really is.

To me, it looks like the old photo print is reversed - the 2nd word on the advertisement at the upper left looks like "pianos" backwards.

You're right, which means it's St. Paul's Methodist. It was torn down in 1914.
