note card party day





It is Note Card Party day at Vee's.  This month I have chosen 4 different views of Christ Church Cathedral in Fredericton, NB.
















Christ Church Cathedral is located in downtown Fredericton
and is a National Historic Site.

It is built in the Gothic Revival Style and modelled after
St. Mary's Church, Snettisham, Norfolk, UK.

Bishop John Medley was the first bishop of the Anglican
Diocese of Fredericton.

Construction began in 1845 and it was opened in 1853.

It is a beautiful structure whose spire dominates the
landscape along the St. John River.
The third photo was taken through the former train bridge,
now a part of the Trans Canada Trail system.


I hope you will drop by the Note Card Party at Vee's
and find many other 'note card' photos.

Thanks so much for all your visits and comments of late.
And, welcome to my new followers!

Blessings,

Pamela

  1. I like a set of notecards with a theme and yours is a nice one, all the same church but differing views. A lovely spire! I knew I'd be in for a treat when I went to your blog today!

  2. Pamela, your images of Christ Church Cathedral are gorgeous. I love to visit churches. I'm fascinated by all the different architecture. Your selections would make beautiful Note Cards. Perfect for Vee's party!

  3. Your photos are beautiful. Each one is so totally different but each holds the spire. Gorgeous! I love pictures of churches.

    By the way, Pamela, I love the May dish with the lily of the valley in your header. I carried lily of the valley in my wedding bouquet back in 1965.

  5. First, I must tell you I just love your header. I had started collecting tea cups with different months but no longer have them. I also love lily of the valley and want to plant some in my yard. Your photos are beautiful, and would make very lovely cards. xp

  8. Simply stunning. I've been in Fredericton numerous times and I've never taken notice. That roof line and roof color and spire and sitting on the riverbank...all wonderful.

  14. I love spires ... regardless of an individual's faith practice a spire can't help but to lift you up in thought and spirit and let you enjoy a moment with a bigger power. I always marvel at the gorgeous works of art built by man long before current technology. Your third shot taken from the train bridge is a perfectly artistic point of view honoring the architecture of the church. Wonderful, thanks!

  15. Such a beautiful church, and lovely shots of it. Considering the lack of technology isn't it amazing how they could build such amazing structures?

  18. Hi Pamela,

    How neat that we both chose churches as the theme for our note cards this month! Your photos are lovely! I love cathedrals like the one in your pictures; my husband and I saw some pretty ones in England and Ireland when we visited in 1999. New Brunswick looks like a pretty place to live.

    Thanks so much for your visit and your kind comments. :) I hope you have a great day!

  22. What a great theme, and photos so well executed. This was a nice stop for me (from your link at Vee's). I'd buy cards like these!

  23. Such a lovely church, the spire is almost a replica of the one where I was christened in my home town England!
    Great photos - bet you could sell them as postcards Pamela. Second one is my favorite as the church appears to be growing out of the woodland!
