Regarding San Fernando Church, it looks like the bell tower was supposed to be taller because it seems like it's not in proportion with the base..
carl, ideally, gothic style churches have soaring spires and towers. in the case diri sa pinas, the builders have to shorten the height as a precaution on earthquakes. Mao na wa jud ta churches as grand and as tall as those found in Mexico or europe. usually, its squat. this is also the reason why the two spires of the church in angeles, pampanga is not as tall.

Wow! congratulations! how much is this book in hard and softbound editions?

I had scannied many of the old photos on a 1940 album conmemorativo of the archdiocese just last week. voila! you have your book out already! but you are right, i find the retouches made on the churches too "touristic", if that's a word to describe it...parang mga postcards...but the facades look so nice and so unlike what you see in reality hhuh...

Here goes nothing:

The churches found in the city, ca. 1939-40:

The Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral, which I think looks like it is painted (in pink, perhaps?) in this photo...



Sto. Rosario Church, the one near USC Main, which was spared during the bombings of 1944 but not the modernizing endeavors of Cardinal Rosales in the 1960s.



Mabolo Church, which now has a weird mixture of roman and neo-classical features:


The Recoletos Church, which was destroyed in the early 60s and replaced with another one.



San Nicolas Church which I think suffered a direct hit during the Liberation bombings of 1944



El Pardo, which lost its spaciousness due to the money-making ventures of its parish priests....haha..



Guadalupe church, before the domed one replaced it:
