Big and Bold and Confident...

A beautiful Edwardian street in Lee where many houses still have their original glass. Imagine walking down this street in the twilight with the gas lights flickering behind the glass or perhaps the more adventurous having the modern 'electric' lighting. The Victorian factory style stained glass workshops like Goddard and Gibbs were still in full swing at this time and whole streets and estates were planned with stained glass, often with small differences between neighbours to add that individual touch.
A full rebuild and clean up before reinstallation.
 A full rebuild (and later repair!) note the unusual asymmetry of the design. 

A new copy for the neighbours of one of the street designs. Adaptations included adding roundels and globs and keeping some of the quirky asymmetry!
