The subject of this Historic St Albans greeting card is the Lady Chapel at the cathedral there. Referred to most simply as "The Abbey" it's more correctly St Albans Cathedral or the Cathedral and Abbey Church of St Alban. Parts of the medieval building date back to Norman times but the history of The Abbey is older still. In fact it's named for Britain's first Christian martyr who lived nearby in Roman times. Following the dissolution of the monasteries the old abbey fell into disrepair and was ultimately subject to an extensive restoration in Victorian times. The appearance of much of the building was dramatically changed from how it looked in the middle ages, but I've read that the Lady Chapel is one of the best preserved parts of the old church. The restoration of this part of the church was begun under the direction of the noted English architect, Sir George Gilbert Scott.
The artwork seen on this card is based off one of my own photos from my day spent visiting the historic Abbey at St Albans. the light flooding the old stained glass windows was simply breath taking and makes for a special scene that gives one an idea of the purpose of these beautiful old windows in historic churches like this one.

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 ❤️

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!
