Description

A photographic view of St Mary's Hall in Coventry, with St Michael's Cathedral (bombed during World War Two) to the left and the Tudor-built 22 Bayley Lane on the right, published by Francis Bedford & Co. Built in 1342, the Hall stands next to St Michael's Cathedral. Mary Queen of Scots was held here in 1569. Bedford (1816-1894) was a prolific and well-respected photographer, best known for his numerous topographic and architectural views of Britain. During the 1860s and 1870s Bedford travelled extensively throughout Britain, taking hundreds of views of British scenery. He was asisted by his son, William (1846-1893) whose work is almost indistinguishable from that of his father.
