An extra picture from my tour of Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania. This building is part of the American Viscose Company complex, built in 1910 and the first place in North America where artificial silk (rayon) was produced.

Yesterday, March 29, marked the 371st anniversary of the Swedes landing in Wilmington, making Wilmington their only colony in the New World. The main ship that they sailed on in 1638 was the Kalmar Nyckel. A replica of the Kalmar Nyckel was produced in 1998 to represent the city of Wilmington and the state of Delaware as our tall ship. The Kalmar Nyckel is based in Wilmington.

I enjoyed that tour of Cathedrals! The one in Newark was the most surprising. St Patrick's in New York is very beautiful.

They're all pretty nice in their own ways. I'll have to reupload my picture of the Holy Name interior; that is my favorite interior of them all, since the use of warm wood for the ceiling and different bright colors makes it feel almost like you're in a forest.

I'd like to add Montreal to my list of visited and photographed cathedrals some time, as per your private message. I'd like to see Montreal regardless of the cathedral, though. Actually, I'd like to see more of all of Canada.

I think I'm going to have to show my pictures of Protestant cathedrals, like the Episcopal cathedrals. I've seen a few so far, and they are very nice as well.

If that is the case, check out St Paul's Anglican and St Jame's Anglican here in TO. Both nice!

I've seen St. James' before, at least from the outside. It was pretty nice. I thought that it was Catholic at first, and was going to go in, but it was locked. Then I saw that it was Protestant. Oh well, it would've been nice to have a picture of the inside anyway. I haven't been inside too many Protestant churches, but one that I have been in is Trinity Episcopal in new York City. That looks great as well.

I re-uploaded that picture of Holy Name's interior.

For my next series of pictures, I am going to show pictures of lighthouses that I have. There will be two lighthouses per day until I run out.
