Psalm 104 – Praise the Lord, o My Soul – Lincoln – Anglican Cathedral

Denomination: Church of England (Anglican Episcopal Church) Province: Canterbury Diocese: Lincoln Diocese created in 1072 Bishop: The Rt Revd Dr John Saxbee Dean: The Very Revd Canon Philip Buckler Precentor: The Revd Canon Gavin Kirk Lincoln Cathedral of Lincoln, is a historic Anglican cathedral in Lincoln in England and seat of the Diocese of Lincoln in the Church of England. It was reputedly the tallest building in the world for nearly a quarter of a millennium (13001549), though this height has been questioned. It is highly regarded by architectural scholars; the eminent Victorian writer John Ruskin declared, “I have always held… that the cathedral of Lincoln is out and out the most precious piece of architecture in the British Isles and roughly speaking worth any two other cathedrals we have.”

The 1961 Lincoln Continental was a complete redesign. The car was a full two-feet shorted than the 1960 Lincoln, and the smaller size was noted in Lincoln advertising that featured a woman parallel parking the new model. The body of the ’61 Lincoln was well received, and many consider this model have been the pinnacle of Lincoln style. One feature adding to that style were the front opening rear doors.

The custom built Lincoln Continental convertible used by President Kennedy during his trip to Dallas in 1963 was based upon the 1961 model.

A tip of the hat to Elite Classic Cars whose owner, Clint Knight, has been so gracious in allowing me to photograph Elite’s inventory over repeated visits. The dealership is located in Glenarm, Illinois, just south of Springfield on Historic U.S. Route 66.
