Photographer's Note

I specifically chose this section of the Trade House window for my Easter Day post because it was donated to Glasgow Cathedral by the Bonnetmakers and Dyers and when I was growing up women and girls always had a new Easter Bonnet to wear to church. In fact, there was often an Easter Bonnet Parade and the best hat was chosen as the winner

The fourteen Incorporated Trades of the city are each represented in this window, According to tradition, the forbears of of these trade unions saved the Cathedral from destruction at the hands of a mob in Reformation times.

I stand under correction but I think this 1951 installed window was designed and made by William Wilson (1905–1972) a celebrated Scottish stained glass artist, printmaker and watercolour painter and a member of the Royal Scottish Academy.

Easter greetings - enjoy your holiday

Glasgow cathedral contains probably the finest collection 20th Century stained glass, much of it by Scottish artists, to be seen in Scotland…
