Stained Glass Art

As mentioned yesterday, here are most of the remaining stained glass windows inside St. Peter's. The church is listed as an Evangelical Lutheran church- that question came up in the previous post. St. Peters has over a century of history, dating back to 1910 as a congregation. The first church was built a few blocks from here on Lyon (and has a curious repurposing today as a salon-spa). The present church on Cathedral Hill dates back to 1954, and is done in an English Gothic style.

    @Tamago: yes, they're well cared for, obviously.

    @Furry Gnome: they would be more modern, since the church isn't that old, and they do have themes to them, such as the music window.

    @Tex: definitely.

    @Birdman: the church I attended growing up didn't have these at all.
