Photographer's Note

The first development of the Cambridge area began in AD 40, by the Romans. The bridge over the Cam river here was the crossing point for the "Via Devana" which linked Colchester in Essex with the garrisons at Lincoln and the north.

Today the city of Cambridge (pop. 118,000) is best known by its University. The most famous building is King's College Chapel (SEEN IN THE SHOT), built from 1446 to 1515. The Chapel is widely seen as the symbol of Cambridge (it appears for example in the new logo of the city).

By the way, today there are 21 bridges over the Cam river in the city of Cambridge, most of them footbridges. The bridge in the shot is probably King's College Bridge.

SCAN of print with colors in bad condition. Conversion to B&W by desaturation. Also cropped.

I post this original low contrast version, hopefully it has the nice foggy look of that day. Anyway, it is also possible to see a high contrast version in the WORKSHOP.
