25 Bagpiper at St. Patrick’s Basilica Montreal, Canada

St. Patrick’s Basilica was built in 1847. The minor basilica is as much Roman Catholic as it is Irish. The church was constructed to accommodate a flood of immigrants from Ireland during the early 19th century. Inside you will find lots of columns, stained glass and Irish shamrocks. This bagpiper was patiently waiting for a wedding party to emerge through the Gothic archway. He was thankful to be wearing a kilt on the hot summer afternoon.
