Description

One of three photographs of the Baptist Tabernacle church in Clarence Street, Perth, Tasmania. The church was designed by English architect George Fagg and built in 1889 by William Gibson. The church is said to have Indian influence, but Byzantine influence can also be discerned. In particular, the church is octagonal, unlike the cruciform design of most west European churches. This photograph shows the classically inspired front entrance of the church.
