Detail from the Lucy R. Woods Window, Trinity Church, Boston

It is one of the many hidden gems of Trinity Church in the City of Boston.  According to archival records, the Woods Window was commissioned in memory of Miss Lucy R. Woods (1847-1904).  Miss Woods taught the Young Ladies’ Bible Class in the church Sunday School for thirty-three years, beginning in 1871.

The window was executed by John Hardman and Company, Birmingham, England, and designed by Dunstan John Powell, grandson of noted English architect and artist Augustus Pugin.

The window is located in a stairwell not easily accessible to the public but postcards and prints will soon be coming to the Book Shop.

Until then, you can read more about the original 1906 unveiling of the window here.  Hope to share more information about this window, and other hidden gems, in the near future.
