A Grand Spell of Sunshine - The Life and Legacy of Francis FrithA Grand Spell of Sunshine - The Life and Legacy of Francis Frith

Canterbury, St Stephen's Church Interior c.1888

A Memory of Canterbury.

There are several dating features on both this print and subsequent ones and inspection of the church today that suggest that the photograph is probably correctly dated at 1888.  The pews shown were installed in that year, replacing an earlier box version.  A memorial tablet on the wall in commemorating the life of a local lady who died in 1888 does not appear although it is present on a photograph of 1902. I would suggest that the photograph was taken in 1888 to show the new pews "in situ."
