Christ Church, Revisited


One of the oldest churches in the city, Christ Church Cathedral is a nice example of Gothic Revival.



As is blatant in the front portals and tower, there were later, early Twentieth Century additions, creating one of the few errors in Compton and Dry: a tall, pointed spire that was never built but speculatively and incorrectly attached to the church in 1875-6. Also, the side chapel was renovated in the Modernist style.

And I always enjoy the way the light reflects off the windows of the Shell Building across the street.
