Built at the turn of the 20th Century, I imagine that this cathedral would have been an incredibly tall building at the time. Today, over a century later, buildings dwarf the Holy Rosary Cathedral.
I took this photograph from high above the ground at Vancouver’s Lookout because from this vantage point, you being to realize how small the cathedral really is compared to all the buildings that surround it. From the inside, however, the cathedral looks impressive and large. I just found that quite paradoxical.
