This vintage print shows a view looking towards St Ann’s Gate at the end of St Ann Street in Salisbury. The gate forms an entrance to the NE corner of the Cathedral Close. St Ann was the mother of Mary to whom the cathedral is dedicated and St Ann Street is a pleasant combination of Georgian and Victorian buildings.

The original C14th gateway formed a communal building for the Vicar’s Choral (laymen employed to sing musical sections of the cathedral services), a guild who were dissolved at the Reformation. The building was purchased by the Harris family who owned the nearby canonry and it became their music room.

This is an original facsimile print and is in a good clean condition with pencil signature. It is available mounted in an ivory conservation quality mount and framed with a black and gold wood frame with acrylic glazing. Price – £40.00.

Approximate dimensions are:

Mount window: 130 x 120 mm
