Brief Description of Subject: Doric columns are pictured on the sides as if holding up the top part of the window. These columns are in harmony with the façade which is in the Grecian Doric style. The center contains a roundel depicting a reddish sky. This reminds one of a well known adage repeated by Christ in Matthew 16: 1 - 3 (KJV):
"The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven. He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?"

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.
