Day 68 – Holy Trinity Anglican Church   4 comments

We have another church today, this time the Holy Trinity Anglican Church. It was originally built in 1893 a few blocks south of its current location. The original building was moved to the current location in 1900. It then had several modifications including a rectory in 1902, a basement in 1906 and the completion of the rest of the structure before re-opening in 1913.

One of the unique features of this building is that it was constructed using clinker bricks. Clinker bricks are fired at much higher than normal temperatures for normal bricks. The result is a much stronger, more resilient brick. When viewed up close, many of the bricks are much darker than others. Some have even taken on the appearance of glass and look like they are being squeezed out of the wall.
