Magic Lantern Slide: Canterbury Cathedral, 1939

This photographic slide by William Weaver Baker shows a view of Canterbury Cathedral in 1939. Weaver Baker must have positioned himself quite a distance away from the cathedral to include the full height of the late-fifteenth century Bell Harry Tower in the photograph. He was interested in architecture and often took photographs of historic buildings.
