“A fine piece of stained-glass art has been presented in Memory of the late Mr. William Grace to the Church of the Immaculate Conception, Hawthorn. The window is a three-light, the subject being that of the Annunciation, beautifully designed and executed in rare antique glasses. In the centre light is a richly-draped kneeling figure of the Blessed Virgin, with the Angel Gabriel in warm and mellow whites. With outspread wings of a beautiful golden hue. In the sidelights are angels in more subdued tints. There is written on a tablet at the base of the window, “Erected to the memory of William Grace.” The subject is framed in carefully-designed architectural canopy, and the base is executed in silvery whites richly stained. The three lights measure bout 13ft. high by 22ft. wide. The work was executed entirely in Australia, at the studios of Messrs. Brook, Robinson, and Co. Limited, Elizabeth-street, Melbourne”.
