“The church of All Saints’, East St. Kilda, has had its internal appearance considerably improved by the recent erection of three stained-glass windows, together with a metal chancel-screen and gates. The windows (the gift of Mr. George E. Porter) come from the celebrated establishment of Messrs. Clayton and Bell, of Regent-street, London, and are pronounced by them to be the richest specimens of their workmanship yet supplied to these colonies. The principal subjects are the Annunciation, the Adoration of the Magi, and the Home of Nazareth. The metal screen (manufactured by Messrs. Keith and Co., of London) has been constructed to harmonise with the candelabra erected in the church a few years ago, after removal from the Chapel Royal, Windsor, where they had long been a conspicuous ornament”.
