He was a major promoter of the Oxford Movement.

The photographs show the chancel of St. Peter's Cathedral including the rood screen and the altar. The screen was apparently designed by William Critchlow Harris while he was an apprentice to the architect David Stirling at the office of Stirling Dewar in Halifax. There are chairs at the edge of the photo which dates the picture to prior to 1926.Photograph B is slightly cropped and doesn't show the chairs.
The photographs show the high altar. There are minor differences between the images but they are essentially the same. Note that candles and statues are shown. The statues are white, which predates the images to before painting was done in the early 1970's. The envelope holding the negatives has "No. 4" written on the front.
