Underneath is John Rankin, looking through a window and shielding people in the Underground Railroad. Through the window is someone with a gun and dogs on the lookout for those whom Mr. Rankin is protecting.

The phrase underneath reads, “You shall love one another as yourself” (Luke 10:27). Above that is a depiction of a food bank with a person giving food to a family.

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
