The Minster from the south east
A postcard with a view of the minster taken from the south east looking over the Bishop's Palace. Not dated.
The same photograph as the one above, but notice that the writing is in a different hand and the sky hasn't been washed out. There has been much more care taken in the print processing making me believe that this one was printed by Alfred and the one above by an assistant.
The Minster from the north east
A postcard with a view of the minster taken from the north east. Not dated.

An early morning view along an avenue of trees on the north side of the minster looking east. Not dated.

"Dear L I thought you would like this Photo I expect you will know where it is you have scrubbed the steps a few times. Hope you are all well much love Lizzie"
I wonder how many times I walked through this door on my way to school services!
