Tony Sampas shows us two of the incredible stained glass windows in our city’s Pollard Memorial Library
UPDATE: Tony sent along the following information about these two windows
From the Pollard’ website: “Altogether a creditable building” boasted a local newspaper when Lowell’s Memorial Building opened in 1893… A disastrous fire in 1915 nearly destroyed this beautiful building, and left the Memorial Hall a blackened ruin. Immediately the city began to rebuild. Frederick W. Stickney, architect of the original structure, planned the reconstruction of Memorial Hall…The eight original leaded glass commemorative windows were reproduced, at a cost of $1,475.”
My guess is that the first image is of the archangel Gabriel and the second (with the shield) is the Greek goddess Athena.
