Description

A view of the mid-gothic style lancet windows at St John the Evangelist Anglican Church in Fremantle, Western Australia. This style is characterised by the shape of the stone tracery inside the enclosing arch. Above the lancet windows are also small circular openings containing quatrefoil patterns. Located in King’s Square in the centre of Fremantle, St John the Evangelist Anglican Church is a neo-gothic building constructed from limestone. It was designed by W. Smith and constructed by J. J. Harwood and Son. The foundation stone was laid in 1878 and the building was consecrated in 1882. The church replaced an older building that had served the Anglican congregation in Fremantle since 1843.
