Notes on the Geography of New Zealand: Christchurch: Photo 18
The cathedral had been designed by the eminent George Gilbert Scott: nothing had been too good for the leaders of the Canterbury Association. The Association had been created in 1848 as a settlement scheme and by the early 1850s had imported some 26 shiploads of pilgrims--about a hundred pilgrims in each. Construction of the church began in 1860, and the nave was consecrated in 1881.
Yes, the cathedral did have a tower; it was demolished in 2012. So were most of the neighboring buildings. The survivors include the Novotel on the left and the Millennium Hotel on the right. The Millennium was still closed when these pictures were taken in 2015.
