Veronica talked about the stained glass in the beautiful Victoria Baths in Manchester in front of an audience at the IHR back in January. The paper features an analysis of the imagery in the baths’ stained glass as well as a disucssion of sporting stained glass in other locations around the UK before Veronica took questions from the floor.

Veronica Smith is currently studying for a PhD in History of Art, exploring the pivotal role of stained glass in municipal and domestic architecture of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries in British cities. She has previously published work on stained glass firms of the Victorian and Edwardian eras.
