The St Canice's Catholic Church, Katoomba.

"St Canice's was preceded by a small weatherboard church, which begun in 1887. The tiny church - 14 metres x 7 metres - cost 160 [pounds]...During his [Fr Bridge] tenure he oversaw a frenzy of building, culminating in the laying and blessing of the foundation stone of St Canice's by Cardinal Moran in 1902".
