EDITORS COMMENTS
This print transports us back to the year 1862, capturing the magnificent Wells Cathedral in Somerset. The image was expertly captured by Cundall, Downes & Co, a renowned architectural photography association of that time. The focus of this particular shot is on the impressive west front of Wells Cathedral as seen from the northwest angle. What makes this photograph truly remarkable is the presence of timber and rope scaffolding that stretches up to the height of the screen. This ingenious construction allowed for detailed photographs to be taken, showcasing intricate quatrefoils and sculptures adorning the cathedral's facade. As we gaze upon this historic image, we are reminded of both medieval craftsmanship and Victorian sensibilities. Wells Cathedral stands tall as a testament to human ingenuity and devotion throughout centuries past. Preserved within Historic England's archives, this picture offers us a glimpse into an era where religion played a central role in society. It serves as a reminder of our rich cultural heritage and invites us to appreciate not only its architectural grandeur but also its spiritual significance. Let us marvel at this snapshot frozen in time - an exquisite blend of artistry, faith, and history - forever immortalized through albumen printing techniques mastered by Cundall, Downes & Co.
