A NEW stained-glass window celebrating Maryhill's industrial past has been unveiled at a historic Glasgow building.
A competition was launched to design a new window for the Maryhill Burgh Halls, which opened earlier this year after a £9.5million restoration project.
The building already boasts 20 windows designed by Stephen Adam in 1878, which have been returned to the building after a gap of nearly 50 years.
The Trades House of Glasgow ran a competition open to students from the Glasgow colleges, to design a new stained-glass window to celebrate the historic links between the city and the trades of the Maryhill area.
The winning design for the new window was by Agnes MacLean, student at City of Glasgow College, whose design depicts the shields of the house and its trades against a starburst background.
The window, which is being generously gifted to the Maryhill Burgh Halls Trust, will be on prime display in the upper foyer of the building.
The new panel has another key link to Maryhill – the window was constructed by local glass artist Bryan Hutchison, whose father Neil worked with artist Gordon Webster, whose father Alf inherited Stephen Adam's business and studio.
