Baltic Exchange glass

Stained glass from the Baltic Exchange building, which was severely damaged by a terrorist bomb on 10th April 1992. The glass was originally unveiled in 1922. John Dudley Forsyth was commissioned to design the series of stained glass windows shortly after the First World War. The windows formed part of a memorial to the 60 members of the exchange who lost their lives. The memorial consists of a half-dome and five large windows which in the original building were below the dome. They were installed over a staircase to the lower floor. The glass was painted and stained by skilled glass painters following Forsyth's design. These were then fired and assembled into windows, where they were held together by a network of lead strips. the windows were made by Lowdes & Drury, Fulham.
