1940: Mass on Scafell

It's not strictly a Cathedral photograph, but this image does show something of the life of the Lancaster Diocese nearly 70 years ago. It shows Mass being celebrated on Scafell on 16th July 1940. The group is the St Cuthbert's Catholic Boys Association, and this is probably the first Mass ever celebrated on Scafell. There may not have been all that many since!
