Basilica of St. Lawrence

By Joline
These are several shots of the exterior of the Basilica. It is almost impossible to get an entire view of it with the camera, so I stuck with pieces and parts. This was built between 1905-1909 by Rafeal Guastavino and Richard Smith, who were also the designers. There was no public monies used, it all came from donations. There are no wood or steel beams in the entire building, it is entirely of tiles and masonry. Tomorrow I will show you a few of the interior details.

All three are wonderful images, but for me, I love the door.
So very impresive, with those beautiful delicate figures.

These are lovely shots Joline. I wonder if the builders of today could match some of these skills.

Looks to me like you've chosen your snippets well Joline, with such an imposing entry (V2) the sign seems a tad incogruous!
Rgds., Jim
