Events at the Southwell Minster

A selection of events held at Southwell Minster captured by Alfred's photographic skills.

A procession into the Minster

The Bishop in the procession

This and the following photograph were taken on the same day. Several members of the crowd can be identified in both photos. This photo features Sir Edwyn Hoskyns, the second Bishop of Southwell (1904 - 1925). I have not yet managed to date the occasion, but it was before the mass removal of the gravestones.

A procession into the Minster (part 2)

The army in the procession

A military aspect to the procession and shows, what I think isajh the campaign flag of the 2nd Battalion Sherwood Foresters, it can also be seen in the distance in the photo above.

Both photographs are printed on unposted postcards using "Cartolina Postale" stock and I am not sure why Alfred would be using Italian material.
