Reflections at Mersey Square

Just over a year ago I posted a photograph of Himalayas Tea who had moved into a shop on Mersey Square.

The business has now relocated to Houldsworth Mill in Reddish and these premises are empty at present. The shop window still reflects the railway viaduct across the way and the sky beyond.

Stained Glass in St Peter's Church

Following up from the recent post Inside St Peter's church here are close-ups of the five Belgian stained glass windows by Carponnier (1889). Click on the images to open up the full-sized photographs.

The outer left window depicts St Petrus (Peter).

The inner left window depicts St Mary.

The middle window depicts the crucifixion.

It carries the wording
"These windows were placed here to the glory of God and as an affectionate memorial of the Revd Henry Wright and Mary Catherine his wife by their daughter Julia Catherine Wright 1889."

The inner right window depicts St Johannes (John).

The outer right window depicts St Stephanus (Stephen).
