• 1 Thomas Fuller

    Thomas Fuller was born in Bath, England, and emigrated to Toronto in 1857. Soon after his arrival, he set up an architectural firm with Chilion Jones (1835-1912), with whom he designed Canada’s Parliament Buildings (Ottawa, completed 1878; destroyed by fire in 1916). He was Chief Architect at the department of Public Works from 1881 to 1896, where he supervised the design of over 140 buildings across the country. It was through these designs that he defined the character of federal architecture in Canada. His small post offices became recognizable symbols of the federal government. From a religious architecture perspective, the firm specialized in Anglican church architecture in a Gothic revival style, including: St. Stephen-in-the-Fields (Toronto, 1858); St. Alban the Martyr Anglican (Ottawa, 1867-77); and St. John the Baptist Anglican (Lyn, 1858-69).
