Pictures from “Cathedral Cities of France” by Herbert Marshall and Hester Marshall, 1907. My copy has a red stamp on the title page, “Toronto, the Mission Book Co. Ltd. 1907” but the Impressions page says Copyright 1907, by Dodd, mead & Company, Published September 1907” from which I take it that this book was printed in the USA and imported. In either case, whether American or Canadian, it is out of copyright now.

Bayeux from the Meadows

Bayeux itself is a quiet country town, built up one low hill and down another—a town of long streets and grey-shuttered houses, possessing three principle interests—the Cathedral, the Seminary Chapel and [...] Chartier, minstrel and court-poet to Charles VII., and author of that curious document, the “Curiale,” whose best praise lies in the fact that it was one of the earliest books selected for publication by Caxton.

Poitiers.

Saint Pierre at Poitiers [...] certain characteristics it has which connect it with the Angevin style, but unlike most of the Angevin churches, it has aisles throughout. From the outside the appearance is that of a single mass, long and low, and very wide, for the aisles are nearly as broad as the nave; as at Bourges, there is no central tower at the [...] out, no sign either of choir or sanctuary. The tran- septs are more like side chapels with altars on their eastern walls. There is no sign of northern influ- ence, and the church is in many of its features unique and without imitators. Certain details of construc- tion bring it into line with St. Maurice at Angers; it is an ordinary example of the churches of Poitou, with their three naves of equal height and Byzantine cupolas.
