Christ Church Cathedral, Victoria, British Columbia. This parish on Canada’s Pacific coast had colorful beginnings; an English baroness, a great philanthropist, took an interest, endowed the diocese where there previously wasn’t one, and sent over a prefabricated iron church, as she’d heard Vancouver didn’t have any trees. (Trees outnumbered people a million to one.) So the priest sent the iron church to the other side of town and built himself a wooden one – which soon burned down. This stone version dates from 1929 and is there to stay. (Brandon Godfrey in Wikipedia)
