This picture is by T. T. Bury and W. Read and shows St James' Cemetery looking east. The side of the oratory with one column visible stands tall in the right of the image. A woman with a child are draw small in the foreground to give everything else a sense of grandeur. The child points towards the oratory. Three other people are drawn in the bottom left of the image - one man points to the grounds of the cemetery. Very few memorials are shown. The centre of the image is dominated by the large east wall and ramps, with the catacombs cut into the rock. Small figures are drawn walking throughout the cemetery. Gambier Terrace can be seen on the ground above in the background, and the newly built St Bride's Church peeks above the railing in the centre.
