St Paul’s Cathedral, London

History of Rattee and Kett, Cambridge

Rattee and Kett were involved in the major restoration of St Paul’s Cathedral after WWII. The work in the choir area lasted from about 1948-1958. Reunions of former Rattee and Kett staff still take place every ten years.

This is a scan of an article describing the creation of the new high altar canopy at St Paul’s:
