Calvary at Plougastel

A photograph if this Calvary recently appeared on another blog . A few days later I came across the postcard in our collection. I thought I’d post it here as it is an interesting subject. As usual the local children have wriggled themselves into the photograph.

Here is a link to Caroline’s photos where you can see the top of the cross in more detail. She tells me that it is made of granite!

Thats an interesting shot.

I have never seen a building like this with soo tall a cross.
with more than just Jesus on it.
I wonder if the people below are his family and friends. and then below the public?

Link away Anji and tell them it is carved from granite.

A Lady's Life: The wonders of the old world! I think that they are just local children, come to see what is going on.

Caroline: Thank you - done!

I was talking about the post card Anji.The people on the roof must symbolize the people who came to see the crusifiction.The children seem to be dressed for church because one little girl has a purse and the other has a sunday dress on with a pretty hat and it must be a very hot day.

A Lady's Life: Oops, I see what you mean. Caroline's photo give a lot more detail. Yes the children are well dressed.
