at Rupertswood

Penny stayed home last Sunday while I visited the Rupertswood mansion at Sunbury. I was having High Tea, in the huge, sumptous dining room.

When I saw the fantastic stained glass panels, made by Urie and Fergeson, in 1874-676, I naturally thought of Penny.


These close-ups might explain why I thought of her. Somebody involved in the design of this window sure loved dogs!



There were some lovely stained glass pictures of Australian animals, of course. 



Here's another view of the windows, with a person in front to show the scale.

Cardells, I had never been there before. It sure is interesting and beautiful. The strange thing is that it's part of a school now - Salesian College. Though I think this part is a hotel and is separate.
