caption: “The Holy City” window above the altar at Immanuel Episcopal Church has no figures. The window was inspired by Dr. William H. Laird, Immanuel’s second rector from 1913 to 1919. It has rich golden accents symbolizing the joyous feeling of life over the Holy City, and Schoonover said of it at the time it was done, “There is always the opportunity of reading into this mosaic of glass your own interpretation – if you care to make it a personal venture.”
