The aisled nave has six bays and at the eastern end is a rood screen, erected by Bishop Stanley and re-worked by Sir George Gilbert Scott in 1872. It has a central entrance flanked by three two light openings on each side. The parapet above was added by Scott, and has a projecting octagonal section. In the image, a screen or fabric hangs over the rood screen. The cathedral church was damaged during bombing in the Second World War

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the timeless beauty of Manchester Cathedral, also known as St Mary's Cathedral Church, in 1942. The image showcases the east end of the nave, providing a glimpse into the architectural grandeur and historical significance of this sacred place. Originally built between 1422 and 1520 as a collegiate parish church, Manchester Cathedral was granted cathedral status in 1847. Over its long history, it has undergone several restoration and rebuilding projects to preserve its splendor. Notable renovations took place between 1814-1815,1862-1868,1885-1886, and 1898. The cathedral boasts an impressive structure with a west tower featuring a porch and choir rooms. Its aisled nave is adorned with north and south chapels and porches while the choir and presbytery are also aisled with additional chapels on either side. To the east lies a rectrochoir and lady chapel. Intriguingly captured in this photograph is a screen or fabric hanging over the rood screen—a significant feature within the cathedral that was erected by Bishop Stanley before being reworked by Sir George Gilbert Scott in 1872. However, alongside its rich history comes evidence of adversity faced during World War II when Manchester Cathedral suffered damage from bombing raids—an enduring testament to both human resilience and faith. George Bernard Wood skillfully immortalized this moment through his lens for future generations to appreciate not only the architectural magnificence but also to remember how even amidst destruction, places of worship hold steadfast importance within our communities.
