Photograph of York Minster, in the background, with domestic buildings in the middle distance and a crenelated wall in the foreground.

This study, which was shown at the Photographic Society's exhibition in 1855, is a reminder of Bedford's early architectural experience and consequent interest in church buildings. He had exhibited other (non-photographic) pictures of York Minster at the Royal Academy in 1843 and in 1849.
