Trinity College Chapel


This is the wonderful chapel at Trinity College which is part of U of Toronto. Built in 1955. the chapel was designed by renowned British architect Sir Giles Gilbert Scott who designed the Liverpool Cathedral and the famous British red telephone booths! It was one of his last works and its perpendicular-Gothic style features ceilings which are 47' to the top of the vaulting. Good friends are renewing their marriage vows here today and I am missing it but I am sure it will be wonderful!

What a wonderful architect he must have been to have such a wide range of skills. I love the British phone booths, and was just thinking this chapel would be a wonderful place for a wedding when you mentioned your friends renewing their vows. I'm also sure it will be wonderful. It's a delightful chapel.

This is lovely, Redpat. If I had known you were posting this today, we could have coordinated. Trinity College in Hartford has a marvelous chapel.

What a wonderful capture! This chapel is lovely and so intimate. The high ceilings so impressive. It was nice to learn that Scott designed the red telephone booths.
