ENGLISH CATHEDRAL, GRAHAMSTOWN

This Cathedral is considered to be by far the finest specimen of ecclesiastical architecture which the English Church possesses in South Africa, and has the further distinction of possessing the only peal of bells (eight) in the country. The edifice is dedicated to St. George, and, amongst other interesting features, contains, in front of the altar, a monument to Colonel Graham, from whom the city derives its name. Its noble spire, 180 feet high, was built from designs made by the late Sir Gilbert Scott.. The services are ably rendered by the Bishop, assisted in his office by the Dean, Archdeacon, six canons and several other clergy. The width of the streets, for which Grahamstown is noted, is well shown in this view.
