Cavalry Presbyterian Church,

the expert enamelwork is eveident in this, the most visible eye- level window of the upper balcony sets. The windows are in various states of disrepair, the enamel has failed in many center sections, or been scratched off, and the replacement of glass by poorly trained glasspainters with incompatible paints makes these windows wholly uninspiring. The images are standard stock, a Godd sheperd, a Jesus with children, a Jesus in Gethsemane.... the only interest is for one who might enjoy the detail of the many fine enameled figures, and the optical quality of amber-opal and pink streaked glass in the borders.
