Stained Glass

On Friday, there was a job fair in the Town Hall which I have photographed before and  have posted on here. Whilst I was there, I decided to take photos of the Stained Glass windows. I figured that if I was not allowed to, someone would come and tell me, but nobody did. The town hall was built in the 1200’s and was a storeroom before becoming a “Maison Dieu” – House of God and later becoming a gaol, and then the Town Hall.

  1. I can’t imagine the ability to photograph something so old and beautiful! There are houses…monuments that go back to 1600s here in US that I have seen, but one must travel over seas to have a glimpse of real history. The pics are spectacular! Thanks for sharing them… 🙂

    • Thank you Courtney. I was thinking that the other day, when I was in there, that in some countries – US and Australia, there is no true old beauty before 1400s

  2. They probably liked your enthusiasm Al as not many people take the time to enjoy such delicate craftsmanship these days, which is a real shame I think. These stained glass windows are exquisite 🙂

  3. Niice! 🙂
    Thanks for sharing these. I love how the light from the outside hits the windows.
    Stained glass windows are an interesting form of art.

    • Thanks very much Audra. They are much better in person. You can’t see them from the outside as they have wire mesh to stop them being broken

  4. I love stained glass, especially older pieces in historic buildings and churches. Thank you for sharing these today.
