Full text: Beauties of continental architecture

The Churcli of St. Peter, situated near Calais, of which the plate gives an 
interior view, is a plain ancient building, and certainly not remarkable for any 
extraordinary beauties of its architecture. There are, however, in it several statues, 
some of which are seen in the plate, and will be found to be by no means in a bad 
style. The drapery may indeed be said to be even graceful. We have not been 
able to ascertain whether these statues are coeval with the building of the Church; 
but it is not improbable that, though of ancient date, they may be rather more 
modern. Besides those in the Plate, one of the Vignettes represents a Crucifix, 
fixed in another part of the Church. 
The other Vignette gives a view of the Gate of Calais, to which the notice 
of English travellers has been particularly attracted since the publication of 
Hogarth’s celebrated print of the Roast Beef of Old England.
