Photograph of a church and a clock tower in Sevastopol. The church stands to the left, with wooden scaffolding around its onion shaped dome. The clock tower has columns at its base and mid way up the tower and is topped by a small viewing platform. There is a hillside behind. After an eleven month siege the city of Sevastopol was captured by the allied British, French and Turkish forces on the 8th September 1855. The city was badly damaged during the siege, and many of the grandest buildings lay in ruins.
