The Ruined Cathedral in Ypres, seen from the Cloth Hall

This is another Frank Hurley photograph that tells an amazing story through a riveting scene.  First the destroyed cathedral is framed in the arch of another building which really focuses the view on the wreck.  The detail in the architecture of the cathedral is amazingly vivid and clear.  But the lone soldier gazing upon it is what makes this image so special.
