Skylight - Here and Gone

Lew Wallace installed a stained glass window in the center of the skylight in his Study. Just below the stained glass sat scrolled ironwork.

This week workers removed the stained glass for cleaning and repairs, leaving the ironwork in place. They also removed a couple of the panels of frosted plexiglass that now compose the skylight. Wallace originally had clear glass, and so the peeks through the empty spaces through the windows in the cupola show a partial view of what he must have enjoyed daily.
