St Paul’s Cathedral Melbourne, Australia
St Paul’s was designed by William Butterfield (except for the spires) and built in a revival of the style known as Gothic transitional, being partly Early English and partly Decorated. The foundation stone was laid in 1880. and the cathedral was consecrated in 1891. The organ, acknowledged as the finest surviving work of TC Lewis, was imported from England. (Information from Wikipedia).
The architect died during the cathedral’s construction, and the cathedral spires were separately designed and added after the the rest of the cathedral was completed.
