St. Botolphs Church

This picture was taken in 1898, and shows St. Botolphs church. The picture was made with the photochrom process, which was a very early technique for generating color pictures. The picture is in Boston, England.

    A lovely addition to my Sunday--thank you!

  2. PJM;

    that process seems to give the photo an interesting texture, like it was hand painted, which I understand some earlier b&w photos were.

    Yet these pictures have a lot more detail.

    Thanks for sharing...

  3. I really liked your blog! Very nice

  4. Known as the Boston Stump, the tower can be seen for many miles across the Fens. St Botolph's is celebrating 700 years this year!

  5. It looks like some of the churches around here, in New England - especially in Boston, Mass.
