The Hillcrest Museum Restoration
We traveled to the rural Manitoba town of Souris to rescue this lovely turn of the 20th century installed at the Hillcrest Museum. The window had suffered deterioration to the lead came frame work and the central piece of glass (which more then likely originally was hand painted) had been removed and unlovely replaced by a piece of standard window glass at some point. The museum asked us to completely rebuild the window, which involved carefully removing all the original glass from its lead came structure and cataloging each piece to ensure correct reconstruction. The glass was carefully cleaned and then reassembled including a new central piece of hand painted glass in a nautical theme. We then returned to the museum and reinstalled the window.
