October 1910: “A Beautiful Window” – Gifted to Dunlop Parish Church – Created by Alfred A. Webster

An article on page seven of the Daily Record, on Friday the 28th of October, 1910, reads:




The stained-glass window gifted by Mr. Francis Henderson to Dunlop Parish Church is a

delightful compromise between the old deep-toned art and the modern tendency of

lightness. Adam on one panel, with all the symbols of his transgression surrounding him,

and Christ, with a wealth of emblems of His suffering and victory, has been treated by Mr.

Alfred A. Webster with true poetic instinct and considerable power. There is a generous

richness of colour in the Norman slabs, approaching gorgeousness, yet not gaudy.


The whole window is a wonderful mass of detail and intricate workmanship. It is on view

to-day at the studios of Stephen Adam, 168 Bath Street, Glasgow, and will be unveiled at

Dunlop Parish Church on Sunday week.”
