♦ I finally posted new article after a long break. This one is about the chancel windows of All Saints Anglican Church in South Hobart. I’ve long suspected these windows to be the Work of William Wailes of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England and I eventually found the proof.
♦ I’ve now got an Instagram account for StainedGlassAustralia which I think is a much more palatable medium (than Twitter) to display some stained glass photos with a small blurb.
You can follow my account via Instagram or just have a look now and then at the web address of : https://www.instagram.com/stainedglassaustralia/
After only a couple of months it has gained a significant following. I only post photos specific to our magnificent stained glass hertitage in Australia and I only follow others around the word who post interesting things on stained glass.
♦ I now have a presence on Twitter as @StainedGlassAU. It’s an experiment at this stage. We’ll see what happens!
♦ Updated post 23-07-1884: Christ Church, Geelong, Victoria, by including a photo of Sir Charles Sladen’s grave of the Geelong Eastern Cemetery.
♦ Updated the post: 23-07-1884: Christ Church, Geelong, Victoria, Australia.
A photo of the brass plaque beneath the stained glass window has been added as well as some images of Sir Charles Sladen (1816-1884)
Photo and detail of the gravestone of Edmund Samuel Parkes from St Kilda Cemetery has been added.
♦ I’ve uploaded a detailed selection of all the stained glass windows of St John’s Anglican Church at Corowa in New South Wales.
The chancel window is by Ferguson & Urie circa 1884. Surrounding windows in the chancel and Nth & Sth transepts are by Lyon & Cottier.
A nave window is by “Leonie Le Cornu”, another is by “G+B” (Red Setter symbol?). Artist/Studio for the 1968 ‘Rogers’ memorial window not known.
♦ Photos of the stained glass in St Mary’s Star of the Sea Catholic Church at Corowa in New South Wales have been uploaded to a set on my Flickr site here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/stainedglassaustralia/sets/72157642582593914/
I don’t know which company made these windows by I suspect possibly Gustav Van Treek or F. X. Zettler.
♦ I’ve uploaded a full cycle of photos of the stained glass windows at St Andrew’s Presbyterian church at Kilmore to my Flickr site.
Only the left and right decorative gothic design windows either side of the liturgical west end of the church and the plain windows with mono coloured borders are original Ferguson & Urie glass. I don’t have enough information at present to add an individual article about the Ferguson & Urie windows themselves to this site as yet.
The other figurative windows in St Andrew’s date from early 1900′s and were made by the Brooks, Robinson & Co stained glass company of Melbourne.
