Tiffany/Duncan comment: Tiffany 1910 calls this the Johnson Memorial Window, so possibly Howard Agnew Johnston, the then pastor of the church, was the person who organised the window with the Tiffany company [TIFF1910, DUNC1980, DEDUCED]
Comment: Tiffany's theme for the window and the inscription imply that there would have been a second pane for the window originally [DEDUCED]
