A view of the tall campanile tower at St Michael’s Uniting Church in Collin’s Street, central Melbourne. St Michael’s Uniting Church was designed by architectural firm Reed and Barnes in a Victorian Romanesque style. The style has more specifically been described as ‘Lombardic Romanesque’ on account of the polychrome brickwork and campanile style tower pictured here (See, for example, the Victorian Heritage Register:;721). The polychrome pattern is unusual for a neo-romanesque building, as it was more often found in buildings of gothic design. The church was constructed by John Young between 1866 and 1867, and was originally named The Independent Church. It was renamed in 1977.
