The subject of this historic cathedral Greeting Card is informally known as St Albans Abbey or simply "The Abbey." Officially it is The Cathedral & Abbey Church of St Alban which won't win any points for brevity but is more correct. "The Abbey" has not been an abbey since the 16th century and has been a cathedral in the Church of England since the 19th century. But old habits die hard apparently!
St Albans Abbey and the city itself get their name from St Alban, the first British Christian martyr who lived and died in Roman Britain. Parts of the church date to Norman times - look at the older tower on the right edge of the image. But the more elaborate Gothic architecture is from an ambitious if inauthentic restoration in Victorian times.
Although it may not be how the church looked originally, you have to admit in the warm light of the late summer sun as seen in this artwork on this card it has a stirring presence with all those Gothic lines reaching towards the heavens.

What People Are Saying
I'm a Hill and when I saw this I just had to buy it. I have so many fond memories of spending summer weeks down in Montezuma at Nanny and Paw's store. I was so sad when the flood filled the store with water but it was a testament to the community when so many banded together to help out afterwards. Just know I bought this print to frame and take to Nanny so she can enjoy it as well. Thank you so much for making this ❤️

The Fox Theatre is Definitely FABULOUS! THIS BLACK AND WHITE VERSION GIVES EXTRA NOSTALGIA I believe, is why I picked this 1, though I love ALL OF Mark's pics of the Fox. The theatre is Beautiful, I went to 2 - 3 concerts there years ago & So glad it didn't get torn down. Mark captured Great details in this pic!!

She Loves It!
My girlfriend just received the print, and she loves it! We both love the vibrant colors, and Forsyth Park, Savannah in general, and Tybee Island are special to us because she lives in NC and I live in FL, so every once in a while we’ll meet in the middle and explore together.
Thank you so much!
