“QUEEN VICTORIA’S MEMORIAL.

NAGAMBIE, Monday”.

“The Bishop of Wangaratta, assisted by the Rev. F. W. Willcox, unveiled a stained glass window in St. John’s Church in memory of her late Majesty Queen Victoria during the service on Sunday morning, and afterwards preached. The subject of the window is that of the late Queen at the time of her Coronation, and is a beautiful specimen of the stained-glass art from the studio of Mr. H.[sic] Montgomery, Melbourne. A large congregation was present, and before the service the churchwardens and vestry met the Bishop in the vestry to congratulate him on his consecration and installation and bid him hearty welcome to Nagambie”.

Note: This window has obviously had conservation/restoration work at some time during the past 110 years. The usual William Montgomery mark is not present on this window which is usually seen in the lower border area. The possible restorers mark appears in an obscure area further up which is highlighted in one of the slides.
