An Estate presented by Edward the Confessor to the Monks of Westminster Abbey, was purchased by William the Conqueror for the purpose of erecting a Castle on the isolated hill in its centre. The building was extended by Henry I and Henry II, and Edward III, who was born at Windsor.
The restorations completed in the reign of Queen Victoria at a cost of £900,000, left the Castle one of the most magnificent Royal Residences in the world. [text in original]
The volume containing these images by an unidentified photographer bears the imprint "With H. and C. F. Feist's compliments" but no name, date, or place of publication, though the Feists were dealers in port wine, and Plate 30 demonstrates that the photograph must have been taken after 1902, and John R. Mendel offers evidence that it dates before mid-1906 [GPL].
