“Gilroy Stained Glass Ltd. will be removing and restoring the 103 year old Great West Window in First Presbyterian Church, Edmonton. At over 600 square feet this is the largest leaded window in Alberta, and consists of seven main lights with shaped heads and thirty shaped traceries of various sizes. All of the lights are pointed directly into the surrounding stone mullions which, while challenging, won’t be a problem for John as it is just what he is used to from our work on churches in the UK (I think there’s something in the genes, having a Great Grandfather who was a stone mason). We’re really looking forward to getting stuck into what will be an engrossing project covering approximately 18 months. We have been so impressed to see first hand how well the congregation of FPC, Heritage Alberta and the City of Edmonton are working together to enable the restoration of this amazing window, and how seriously they take its preservation for future generations.” (Excerpt from Gilroy Stained Glass Ltd.)
