The Bell Tower

4 Comments

 

[..], as one of the best expert on Medieval architecture of Dalmatia, T.G. Jackson was hired to complete the construction of the bell tower of the Romanesque cathedral of St Anastasia in Zadar. The bell tower was finished in December 1893, and it is his only architectural work in Croatia. Otherwise, ground floor and first floor of the bell tower were built in 1452 (during Archbishop Vallaresso), while the upper floors were built from 1890 to 1894 by English architect and art historian Sir Thomas Graham Jackson, based on the model of the bell tower of the cathedral in Rab.[..]

Earthquake Impact

2 Comments

In 2008 i spent 6 months in Christchurch working with the Park Rangers. In that time i visited Cathedral Square quite a lot. So it was sad to hear Christchurch got hit by multiple heavy earthquakes which destroyed the city centre. To give an example, this is a before and after picture of the Christchurch Cathedral. The after picture comes from http://nzagainstthecurrent.blogspot.nl/2012/05/cathedral-blues.html All copyright belongs to them for the picture! Just to show you how big an impact an earthquake can have!
