Nave & transept sub-structure
Black and white photograph of men working on foundation of nave and transept sub-structure with cross in background. On the back: The first catehdral to be built on virgin soil since Salisbury was commenced in A.D. 1220. Building operations have been in progress for twenty months and the section now in hand comprises the crossing, transepts, chancel and vestries, and provided the funds are forthcoming, will be completed in 1939. If the remaining funds can be raised (the whole building will cost £250,000), it is hoped to have the cathedral completed in five or six years. Reinforced concrete is being used for the foundations. The large wooden Cross, which originally marked the site, stands midst the building operations.
