I just discovered a tresasure of a postcard when looking through my mom's things for sorting & distribution. In MCMLXXXVII (1987), she & my sister went II England so my mom could attend tea with The Queen at Buckingham Palace, as well as do some sightseeing. My mother sent me a postcard of a beautiful stained glass window in a church. She learned from the tour guide that stained glass windows were taken out of many church windows & stored in basements & in neighboring business basements, as well as at farmhouses. This was of course to preserve them, some C's (100's) of years old b/c of all of the heavy bombing raids by different German air divisions. So in otherwords to save history & prevent it from being destroyed, you have II take it apart, so it can be put back together as part of the whole again!
Thanks IV The History Lesson Mom,
