On Tuesday we had a peek into St. John's Anglican Church on Adelaide St. in Fremantle. Designed by William Smith in London and built by architect Joshua James Harwood in 1882 using limestone from a local quarry..
Above the high altar and the tri-panel stained windows.. the lectern to the left and below, an eagle, the symbol of St. John the Evangelist.. to the very left in the chancel, the organ which was added in 1888..
The Rose Window added in 1917 depicting Saints Mathew, Mark Luke and John with the 'seven acts of mercy' below..
The jarrah ceilings built by Joshua Harwood are a unique feature...
The bell tower was added in 1906..
We were lucky to be there at the same time as Mike, whose great, great, there might even be another great in there, grandfather was Joshua Harwood himself, it was a pleasure to meet and talk with you Mike. I like this strong, well built church very much, just the right amount of 'grandeur' don't you think! Hope you're having a fab weekend, happy Sunday, take care and stay safe...p.s. catch up today!
