Paul Robertson: “In Memory of Those Who Fell — A Legacy in Glass.”
This talk will be held in City Hall.
Paul Robertson, the Curator of the City of Kingston’s heritage collection, will present a talk in Memorial Hall on the second floor of the City Hall. Paul will discuss the magnificent stained glass windows that surround the hall. Financed by local citizens and produced by the world-famous Robert McCausland Glass Company of Toronto, the windows commemorate the battles of World War I in which Kingston men and woman played a role. Paul will highlight the artistry and symbolism embedded in each of these magnificent windows.
