Dr William Plumer Jacobs in Cologne Cathedral - August, 1886
from Diary of William Plumer Jacobs, page 259:
We dropped into Cologne about two o'clock and were right on the great Cathedral in a few minutes and into this wonderful building [...] I was struck dumb with delight at its 50 or 60 splendid pillars spring out of the floor and seeming to uphold the sky, the roof was so far away; there was a service going on, the rich organ peeling out its sweet notes around the aisles.
