A photographic view of the dramatic, ruined old gateway to the Bishop's Palace, at Llandaff in Cardiff, Wales, published by Francis Bedford & Co. The Bishop's Palace dates from the late thirteenth century. A group of boys stand outside the gate watching the photographer. 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.
