Beside the still waters

Historic Second Church.

Although the themes here are very much like the Tiffany Pastoral window on the other side of the balcony, this one, by the Chicago firm of McCully and Miles, was executed very differently, in much bolder strokes. I'm partial to the Tiffany myself, but there are docents who make a convincing case for this one as their own favorite and I can see their point.

 

This was donated by the McBirney family in 1911. They hired Howard Van Doren Shaw, who redid the interior of the church after the fire, to design their gorgeous summer house, "House of the Four Winds," in Lake Forest.
