Do you think the Scottish forebears of this city may have had something to do with this architecture? The tragic collapse of the Christchurch cathedral and Durham Street Methodist Church in Christchurch incited e to upload this pic, Ian

Warm regards,

Nice shot and view at this old church Ian. A pitty that the beautiful church of Christchurch is damaged. Greetings Berend

Thank you Nikolay. I appreciate your response. Warm regards from Australia.

Thank you Jeff. There aren't very many tree windows that would allow my lenses to frame it and see its grandeur.

Cheers indeed.

Greetings Berend,

As I respond just now, New Zealanders have just remembered their dead from the earthquake - one week on from the seconds of shaking that devastated Christchurch, their families, their lives.

Thank you for your empathy.

Hi Ian

I had the impression that Presbyterian Churches were far less grand, and searching the images some of them are, but others like this are magnificent.

Indeed I think the Scottish forebears wanted to build something as good as anywhere in Europe.

Best wishes from England Peter

Greetings Peter,

With the wealth from the goldfields and especially from the wool industry the Scottish ancestors of this city (and others in the antipodes of Britain) did build some great buildings - as you say "as good as anywhere in Europe".

Warm regards,
