These two photographs show the entrance of St John’s Anglican Church in Launceston. The original church was designed by David Lambe and built by convict labour in 1824-5. From 1902 extensive alterations were made under the direction of architect Alexander North (1858-1945), resulting in the red brick building with large rose window and elaborate arched doorway seen in these photograph. The Gothic-styled entrance features pointed arches and niches on either side of the entrance. Towers with buttresses flank the entrance, and there are lancet windows above the rose window.
