CANTERBURY'S GREAT SHRINE FOR PILGRIMS OF TO-DAY AND YESTERDAY

CANTERBURY'S GREAT SHRINE FOR PILGRIMS OF TO-DAY AND YESTERDAY

In the midst of a county which is called "the Garden of England," Canterbury, after many centuries, still watches people from all over the land and from far foreign parts walking its narrow streets. And in the midst of Canterbury stands what all have come to see: the cathedral. Passing through the Christ Church Gateway, we find the West Front before us. The main entrance is the South Porch, whose dim interior we can see at the foot of the south-west or Dunstan Tower, built about 1445. The other tower of the West Front is modern (1833).
