  1. I have been doing some research on stained glass artists Gowers and Brown. They designed and installed two stained glass fanlight windows above the vestry doors in 1960 and made repairs to inscriptions on the memorial windows. I was wondering, do you know whether any of the windows were removed and re-installed in the new synagogue?
