The postcard shows a coloured picture of St. Peter's Cathedral interior looking towards the altar decorated for Christmas with boughs and poinsettias. On the back of the postcard, the text reads: St. Peter's was first used for worship in June 1879 but was not consecrated until the 29th of June 1879 by Bishop Binney. It was erected to meet the needs of Islanders who had been influenced by the Oxford Movement in England. All Soul's Chapel is a real gem, bearing the mark of William Critchlow Harris and Robert Harris, his brother.
The photographs show the interior of St. Peter's Cathedral at night during a service with a full congregation. Photographs A B and C are taken from the balcony while Photograph D it taken is from the floor. Photographs A B, C, and D have been scanned. It is presumed, but not confirmed, that all the photographs are from the same service.

The sixteen photographs show the interior of St. Peter's Cathedral being painted, from various angles. The different shots show different unnamed workers, as well as the risers and painting equipment. Only images 0236 A-F have been scanned.
The photographs show the exterior of St. Peter's Cathedral from three different angles. Photographs A and C show the building's original front while B shows a side view, which includes a view of All Souls' Chapel. Photograph D is a copy of B produced as a postcard. The photographs appear to be taken in the spring, as there are no leaves on the trees but also no snow on the ground.
