Another view of the pulpit

Following our earlier post here, today we share another view of the pulpit. This one dates from the 1960s or early 1970s. Note the different lighting and arcading still visible around the Sacred Heart altar. The statues are also in different positions: the Sacred Heart statue is seen to the left of the picture, just outside the chapel of St Charles Borromeo, while the statue of St Joseph can be seen to the right of the pulpit. On the far right it is clear that the confessional is still in use; it was one of four confessionals which were active at the time. This particular space was later converted for use in the preparation of flower arrangements for the Cathedral.
