The Chapel of St. Mary and St. George at Guildford Grammar School framed by the autumnal display of old English plane trees planted along the avenue leading up to and beside the school.
The stone used in the building is sandstone from Donnybrook in Western Australia's south. Marble from Italy and
Belgium make up the floor, and hand-carved English oak worked by English
craftsmen adorns the interior. The chapel was consecrated on 25th of March, 1914.
A large faint cross can be seen on each slope of the roof of the chapel, remnants of the time in WWII that the US Navy commandeered the chapel for use as a hospital.
At Guildford's incredible Museum of Natural History, taxidermist Michael Buzza presents visitors with a jaw-dropping selection of not-quite-alive animals . . . including dinosaurs such as this one, seen here checking out Godzilla at the movies in downtown Manhattan, New York. And yes Agnes, that is indeed the faint scent of Photoshop you have so expertly noticed . . .
Trained to guard their house's electricity meter-box with their lives, the cats of Guildford are not to be reckoned with . . .unless you scratch them softly under the chin . . . or just a little bit more to the left . . . you bring fish human? . . .
Matthew's Church in Guildford is the only Garrison Church in Australia.
Guildford was also the staging post for the 10th Light Horse Battalion
during World War 1.
Needless to say, the legendary Light Horse Regiment features prominently in all ANZAC day commemorations
