DESCRIPTION

Details

Depicts the designs of the architect W Butterfield. From 'The Building News' of Jun 6, 1879. Depicts plans for St Paul's Cathedral, Melbourne. It was designed by the distinguished English architect William Butterfield, who was noted for his ecclesiastical work. The foundation stone was laid in 1880. Butterfield never saw the site and the building work was frequently delayed by disputes between Butterfield, in England, and the Church authorities on the spot. Butterfield resigned in 1884 and the building was finished by a local architect, Joseph Reed. Consequently the design of the spires differs greatly from those originally planned. Some faint creases.
