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 (Byzantium, or the Eastern Roman Empire, was centred on Constantinople/Istanbul and endured until 1453) influence can also be discerned. In particular, the church is octagonal, unlike the cruciform design of most west European churches. This photograph shows the brickwork and two arched windows within a larger arch.
