Pietermaritzberg Cathedral Bells

This picture shows the Cathedral Bells at Pietermaritzberg in Natal. It shows the importance given to the symbols and rituals of Christianity as they called out the prayer times on Sundays or for weddings and special occasions. In many ways, this picture shows the increasing inroads made by Christianity in Africa in a relatively short period of time.
