A very fine painting. I'm so used to seeing that view in old photos and lithographs, I forget it has colour. Thumbs up Thumbs up Thumbs up

Thanks, Helen. This one is the larger, about 12" high and 15" wide. After that, he did a miniature, about 6" wide, and he always said that, because of the extremely fine detail, it took him over twice as long as the bigger one!

A rare view looking over the graveyard with the bell tower This view from the church roof looks towards the school.

Thank you Helen, I've never seen a view like that one before - and wow, what a fantastic 3D effect! It looks like you can see around the trees towards the school, it brings the scene to life compared to a normal photo. Those clever and innovative Victorians were way ahead of their time with stereo-vision.

They certainly were. This one might have been tourist material because I think it was in a German collection. There are a number of 3D photos out there of Coventry though I've never thought of trying the effect out.

Usually you'd need "stereoview" glasses to see the 3D effect, but a few years ago I learned to get that effect with just my naked eyes by using a similar technique to that used for autostereograms - or "magic eye" pictures. It depends on the image size, but in this particular case, with the Trinity photo(s) being quite large, I found about 18 inches worked. Try looking at the images cross-eyed, then relax your eyes outwards until looking "through" the images into the distance. Eventually a 3rd central image starts to appear, which is the left & right merged - and this image has a magical 3D look about it, like the parts of it are floating at various depths instead of flat and two dimensional. I guess different techniques work for different people, and some perhaps not at all, but it's worth a try. Thumbs up

No 'painting by numbers' in those days Prof. Thank you for the close up.

Thanks, Prof. As I said, I'm not very good with a camera, and taking a picture of the painting doesn't do it justice - lighting errors, distortion, glare and suchlike. I'm looking at the painting now - it's on the wall over my office door. The detail is incredible, e.g. the sunlight streaming through on the right, which you can just about make out in the pic, to the extent that when I was very young, I did not believe he had painted it, but belived it was a photograph. Canon Clitheroe was always associated with Holy Trinity. My father was in the CLB (Church Lads' Brigade), and they used to practice under Canon Clitheroe at the old Drill Hall, which was opposite where Ikea now stands. He won a replica of the Odell Cup, which I still have, for the "smartest individual turnout", and his title on the inscription is "Drummer", July 10 1933.

Yes Prof, the photograph was taken for the cover of a Christmas card in 1970 I recall.
