Brief Description of Subject: There are 4 of these ornamental windows on each of the second level of the bell towers. They are designed to let light into the towers. This window is located on the gospel side bell tower.

The basic pattern at the top and bottom of this window is a very highly stylized fleur-de-lis ------ three lily petals bound together at their base. In the middle of the window is a flower with 4 petals that is suggestive of a cross.

It appears that a section of this window was damaged and replaced with clear glass.

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.

If you have any questions, additions or corrections, or think you can provide better images and are willing to share them, please contact
