Things you only see in a photograph



Sometimes, a photograph shows more than you expect. Looking at Southwark Cathedral, I noticed that high on a cross was some writing (the one just below the clock in this picture). As I had a telephoto shot of just that, I was able to decipher most of what it said (which appears to be only part of an inscription):
Towards the ??? of the and of cast
and the choir of the church
was laid in the presence of the
wardens and gentlemen commoners
the committee of church repairs
by George Sadler Esq
Warden of the great account

September 17, AD 1574

??? ?wilt(?)
Architect

Makes you think, eh? (A zoomed and over-sharpened version is here)
