The photos don't suggest that any tuition is required - they're super, and the colours are stunning! Thumbs up

Great photos. The interior of the cathedral is fantastic.

I disagree. I don't have the skills to create such a building. I don't have the skills to design such a tapestry. You have the skills to produce photographs of them and load them onto this forum for members from around the world to see.

I was lucky enough to get a copy of Basil Spence's book "Phoenix at Coventry" while I was on holiday last week and it made interesting holiday reading. It made me think about the size of the tapestry. Does anyone know of any pictures were taken of the transporting of the tapestry or when it was being hung in the Cathedral. Both jobs must have been difficult.

Question

Hi Anne, There is a sketch of the tapestry being hung inside a Coventry Evening Telegraph Supplement (18 May 1962). Unfortunately the quality isn't brilliant as I had to take a photo of the sketch on my phone (the drawing is A2 size and therefore is too big to scan). Luke. Smile

Thanks for that Luke. The pictures seem to show the last usual last minute rush to complete with all trades working away !!
