Magic Lantern Slide: Consistory Court, The Accused's Chair, Chester Cathedral

This photographic slide by William Weaver Baker shows part of the Consistory Court at Chester Cathedral. The room in which this photograph was taken is in the south-west corner of the cathedral and was used as an ecclesiastical court until 1930. The focus of this image is the chair commonly referred to as the ‘accused’s chair’, although its use is uncertain. It is part of a set of slides Weaver Baker took of the Cathedral, perhaps on a trip there.
