“WINDOW IN MEMORY OF THE LATE CHARLES KEMP, ESQ., IN ST. PETER’S CHURCH.- A commemorative window has recently been put up on the north side of St. Peter’s Church, Woolloomooloo, in memory of the late Charles Kemp, Esq., by his widow. The central lights of the window are occupied by two large separate figures of the Saviour and Nathanal [sic], with the legend “Jesus saw Nathanal coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed in whom is no guile.” The design is by Mr. Anderson; the workmanship by Mr. Falconer. The grace and expressiveness of the figures, the shades of colour, and the border ornamentation, are attractive and worthy of special mention”.

(John 1:47)

Note: St Peter’s is now know as the Great Hall of the Sydney Church of England Girls Grammar School (SCEGGS) at Darlinghurst.
