Helena Cathedral

What a wonderful picture this is, and a surprise perhaps that this is the USA.
Begun in 1908 to the designs of A O Von Herbulis, the cathedral was not completed until 1924. The twin spires recall the Votive Church in Vienna, but the south tower had to be rebuilt after being almost destroyed in the series of earthquakes which shook Montana in 1935. Inside a wonderful series of stained glass windows, all made by F X Zetler in Munich, Germany.
