It was perhaps when the rage for foreign Gothic was at its height that a building was begun in London, which, from its size, the nature of its construction, and the masterlike skill of its design, deserves especial mention. The Church of St. Peter's, Vauxhall is not only an excellent example of Mr. Pearson's originality in design, but may be fairly described as one of the most successful instances of modern ecclesiastical architecture in London.
