More Views

During Julie's visit we walked all around the city. By the end of the first week, she was a 'natural' and could find her way almost anywhere downtown. The few pictures below are of one of the walks we took. As you are probably learning, Cambridge is a very picturesque city. We never tire of taking pictures. Wait until the spring flowers are out!

Here is a view of Clare College from Garrett House Bridge.

This is Cambridge University Library. As one of the copyright libraries in the UK it must be offered a copy of every item printed in the UK. It is like our Library of Congress in the U.S.

This is the south wing of the University Library. Danny's 'stacks' are on the fourth floor, facing us.

This beautiful view, from inside King's College courtyard shows the Chapel on the left, the main gate to the college on the right and the tower of Great St. Marys Church behind the college walls.

This is a view of the 'Backs' from Burrell's Walk.

Cambridge University Press, chartered by Henry VIII in 1534, has its store here. This building houses the oldest bookstore, indeed the oldest store selling the same product, in all of England. The store sold its first book in 1584.

Here is Great St. Mary's Church which is directly across from Kings College.

Here is a view of Kings College Chapel from the courtyard. No matter where you stand here, the view of the chapel is just gorgeous.
