April 1907: Glasgow Stained Glass for the Colonies – Stephen Adam Has Received an Order for Eight Windows for the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Sydney, Australia

An article on page thirteen of The Glasgow Herald, on Friday the 19th of April , 1907, reads:




An important order has been placed in the hands of Mr Stephen Adam, F.S.A. Scot., 168 Bath Street,

Glasgow, for a series of large windows, eight in number, to be erected in the Reception Hall of the

Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney, N.S.W. The windows will perpetuate the names of such

representative families as Professor Anderson Stuart, M.D., LL.D.; Hon. Sir Normand McLaurin, M.D.,

LL.D., M.L.C.; Sir James Graham, M.D.; Hon. Henry E. Kater, M.L.C.; Hon. C. K. McKellar, M.B., M.L.C.;

Sir Alfred Roberts, M.R.C.S; Hon. Sir Edward Knox, M.L.C. The reputation which the city has gained for

high-class stained glass work will doubtless be fully maintained by the examples which Mr Adam will send

to our distant Colony.”
