One of nine known paintings showing the cathedral in ruins, this version is probably by an untrained hand and of poor quality. It is, nevertheless, of considerable importance to the museum, being the only one of the nine to show the river Quoile in the background and a high cross near the round tower (since demolished). It probably dates to the second half of the nineteenth century.
