Subject/Title of Window: Anchor and Pine Cone

Brief Description of Subject: When the top of the anchor is shaped like a cross the symbol is known as an anchor cross. It is beautifully symbolic because of the inference that our faith in Christ is like a sure anchor, holding us steady in the time of the storm. One of the most valuable timber trees, the pine tree, durable and straight grained, is a symbol of the strength and integrity of Bay View Association.

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
