The Rose Window
Situated in the east wall of Winthrop Hall above the pipe organ, the circular window, with a central flower motif of two concentric rings and petal shapes is a prominent feature of the Hall. The design appears to have been modelled on a window from the Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi in Italy; Rodney Alsop took a photograph of the window during his travels there in 1925.
