Postcard of Parish Church

This is the Parish Church, looking down the main aisle.

The card was posted on 16th October 1905 and is addressed to Mrs S Randon, 6 Chancel View Terrace, Lipson, Plymouth. The message says "This is the best I can get of the interior. Quorn is famous for hunting AJH (?)"

The card is written upside down, which was not uncommon as a method of deterring the postman from reading postcard messages!

The eagle lectern is in the same place as it is today, but note the absence of the rood screen. Above the chancel arch it says 'GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHEST. ON EARTH PEACE GOODWILL TOWARD MEN.'
