Praxiteles is inclined to think that teh Armagh photographs represent the interior at two stages: an early sanctuary (provisional one) deliniated by wooden altar rails and the (possibly) the 1904 rails whch do not hsow the High Altar.
Care should be taken about canonizing anything of the earlier photographs since they represent the building still in fieri and without having reached its completion.
WHile it its arguable that the 1904 arrqngement may have been stylistically a little OTT, at the same time NOTHING could excuse the vandalism practices on it by McCormack and the awful neo-pagan hoards in his train.
Again tnakns to Ferg for locating this valuable collection. If Praxiteles recalls correctly, there should already be pictuires of the previuous internal arrangements in Armagh on this thread.
