Ulverstone Church 1950s style

This church was an amazing sight to behold whilst on the pursuit of modernist architecture to photograph throughout Tasmania's West Coast. Although quite a small town, Ulverstone has many modernist gems, that include Hobbs Parade Bridge in 1960s style, and as you head over the bridge there is a flower bed with a period 1950s signage with the name of the park. There are a few modernist churches in town, but this has to be the stand out with the entrance column standing tall and imposing. The geometric brick work on the main building with its gaps is typical of this period of design.
