Notes on the Geography of New Zealand: Christchurch: Photo 13
We're looking at what had once been the Trinity Congregational Church. The church had been sold in 1974 to State Insurance, the owner of the adjoining block. For a time the ex-church was a commercial wedding chapel. In 2006 it became a restaurant and music school. The quake shut it down, and reconstruction has been slow. Meanwhile, someone has a theatrical sense of humor. The architect, Benjamin Mountford, was largely responsible for the Victorian Gothic that is (or was) so characteristic of the city.
