Photographer's Note

This is St Andrew's Cathedral on George Street, Sydney. Designed by Edmund Blacket in the Gothic Revival style and completed in 1868, St Andrews is the oldest cathedral in Australia. It is the seat of the Anglican Diocese of Sydney, presided over by Archbishop Peter Jensen. The stonework is Sydney Sandstone and the floors are of marble and intaglio tiles in the Cosmati style by Fields of London and Mintons of Stoke-on-Trent.

The cathedral is open every day except Friday and Saturday and is certainly worth a visit.

You can see many other examples of Blacket's legacy in my photos of St Johns Church Glebe, St Stephen's Church Newtown, Sydney University and St Saviour's at Goulburn.
