Chubb Lithographs of 18th. Century Bridgwater

On 4 November 2003, Dr Peter Cattermole of bid successfully at Tamlyn & Son for a set of glass lantern slides of Old Bridgwater, Lot 193.

The slides were described as: "Formerly Belonging to J. H. Burge, Verger of St Mary's Church, Bridgwater". The small cardboard box in which the slides were contained supported the description in the catalogue. Inside the box was a loose label informing the purchaser that: "The Vendor's Grandfather was Verger of St Mary's Church Bridgwater".
