Description

A black and white photograph of St John the Evangelist Anglican Church in Fremantle taken by renowned WA photographer Izzy Orloff in the 1920s. St John the Evangelist is a neo-gothic Church located in the centre of Fremantle. It was designed by W. Smith and constructed from limestone by J. J. Harwood and Son. The church was consecrated in 1882 and an older church that had served the Anglican congregation in Fremantle since 1843 was demolished. A number of the church’s gothic features are visible in the photograph, including its rose window, steep gable, entry porch, lancet windows and stone buttresses. A bell turret was added to the church in c.1906 and is also just visible above the trees.
