More images of the Harry Clarke windows at Bayonne

Today I uploaded a few of the images of the Harry Clarke windows from Bayonne, New Jersey. These 9 angels stand high above the altar, each carrying one of the symbols of the Mass. They comprise the first part of a project commenced less than a year before Clarke's untimely death to which he devoted much attention as it was his studio's first American commission. Due to the situation and height of the windows it is not possible to get clear shots of them without scaffolding or some other form of elevation. Click here to see them.
