St Paul's Cathedral RSL01_01_01

St Paul'€™s Cathedral from Southwark Bridge, City of London, 1855-€“9. Unknown photographer, possibly Alfred Rosling (1802-€“82), albumen print. This view of St Paul'€™s Cathedral looming beyond the Thames-side wharves is an albumen print from a wet collodion negative, virtually identical to a calotype photograph by Alfred Rosling taken in 1854. It is possible that Rosling tried to recapture the scene later in the decade using the more up to date process. Alfred Rosling was a timber merchant and one of England'€™s earliest amateur photographers. He was a founder member of the Photographic Society and the Photographic Exchange Club. Rosling moved to Reigate, Surrey in 1859, where Francis Frith was his neighbour and later published many of his photographs.

St Giles Cripplegate FF003274

The Church of St Giles and the Barbican Estate, City of London, 1962-€“4. John Gay (1909-€“99), cellulose acetate negative. The Church of St Giles in Cripplegate Ward dates from the 16th century, and it is associated with some of the nation'€™s most significant historic figures, including Oliver Cromwell, the author John Bunyan and the poet John Milton. A bombing raid on 29 December 1940 reduced the church to ruins, and the neighbourhood was destroyed by fire. St Giles was restored by 1960 to become the parish church for the high-rise Barbican Estate, designed by Chamberlin, Powell & Bon, and built between 1959 and 1982.
