The Holy Catholic Church Railway

Regular readers will remember that I have already made reference to the artist Thomas Noyes-Lewis (1862-1946) HERE and HERE. A staunch Anglo-Catholic, he was for many years a worshipper at my parish church - All Saints’ Benhilton in the south of London - and, indeed, a server at the altar. He was a professional artist, an illustrator of prayer books and children’s books.

I dsicovered another example of his work over at Project Canterbury. He provided the cover illustration (above) for the charming children’s catechetical booklet published by The Faith Press (date unknown), called The Road to Heaven by the Holy Catholic Church Railway. The text was written by R. A. Kingdon, and is Childermote Manual No. 16. Go HERE for the complete text.
