St. John’s, our province’s capital, is the perfect combination of big-city luxury and small-town charm. As the oldest and most easterly city in North America, this is where heritage lives. Melded with culture, history, and personality, St. John’s has survived two World Wars, five centuries, countless hardships and triumphs. It’s become a rare, old city full of character, experience and charisma, with a contemporary, sophisticated edge.
Some of you have asked me where my nickname came from on Redbubble….Well I am from Newfoundland Canada,and we usually call ourselves Newfies:hence NewfieKeith. All Canadians know what a Newfie is..at least they should LOL..But My friends around the world might not know of Newfoundland .This was taken a week ago..Its part of St John’s Downtown…We are well known around the world for our colorful houses, which you can see from this picture…Thought I would share :)
Some info on the Church :St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church in the west end of St. John’s is recognized as one of the “most significant examples of the Gothic Revival Style in Canadian architecture” by the historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada.
Though the history of St. Patrick’s Church in the west end of St. John’s goes back to 1881, the church’s cornerstone was actually laid September 17, 1855 .
