^ Fun fact, Edmonton has a duplicate of Calgary's First Baptist. The congregation of Oliver's Robertson Presbyterian (now Robertson-Wesley United) wasn't able to finance their own design, so instead bought First Baptist's from its Calgarian architect, D.S. McIllroy. Some differences exist between the two — notable substituting Sandstone with Tyndall and the addition of the post-war Memorial Hall in Edmonton's case — but I think you'd be hard pressed to find two more similar churches in Alberta.

That's quite a nice church in Calgary. I've never been familiar with western Canada churches (Manitoba to BC with the exception of St-Boniface in Winnipeg).

In eastern Canada, churches dominated our skylines until the 60s office boom but still possess a place of honour in our cities urban form and continue to be well known landmarks.

Knox United would fit quite handsomely in the Golden Square Mile.

These are some photo of Churches and Cathedrals I've photographed in Victoria over the years. These are all photos I've taken...I've uploaded a couple of multiple photos. Victoria has some really beautiful churches for the size of city it is.

^ That is a great post highlighting a really impressive collection in Victoria. Thanks! I'm actually a little surprised at the size of some of those given Victoria's size when they were built.

Some gorgeous churches posted. And that VIC set is amazing. Love the white one with a splash of colour. I see so many white houses or churches or whatever and wish they had that extra little colour to warm it up. Perfect example. And that red and orange one is quite unique. Would think combining those two colours would produce something ugly. But not the case.

Thanks for all your great comments on my Victoria Church photos. There's one more I haven't photographed yet but will soon. These other two photos are old Catholic buildings.

This is St. Anne's Academy

Right across from St. Anne's is St. Joseph's. It was the only old Catholic building left all the others got torn down. I wish they could have kept them because they were all beautiful old buildings. I also wish I had taken photos of them before they were demolished. St. Joseph's is now appartments.
